Hi,
I'm wondering if I'm the only one thinking that "add-apt-repository" is a bit too long to type and that it should be shorter like "add-repo" instead? IMO it would be easier to remember, less chances to make a typo and quicker to type.

add-a<tab> is all you need to type/remember. If that doesn't work then change to a more full featured shell. :p

I remember seeing a purge repo program around somewhere which would be a nice companion add-a<tab>

This question is kinda like how you write code, years later you come back and wish you kept it as add-apt-repository.
