NSDocument do use aliases. So any Cocoa application basing its MDI on  
that, should get them -- that said, it’s not a problem to call Carbon  
stuff from Cocoa, but when I started programming on Mac, I rarely  
looked outside Cocoa, nor was I, as a non-Classic user, really  
familiar with aliases, so such feature did not seem “lacking” to me,  
on the contrary actually, as when I did switch to Mac, they had  
aliases use the inode over the file path, which often meant that  
programs used the wrong files (those in the trash).
