Description:
------------
This is a documentation suggestion, not a bug report.

I've noticed more than a few times that users will contribute notes on an alias function's reference page (e.g., Array function sizeof() ) which are already documented on the aliased function's reference page (i.e., Array function count() ).  I think that it would make more sense to keep the sets of notes the same across the page of aliases and their aliased function, or disable notes on alias pages to keep duplicate examples and notes from occurring.  I believe that this will keep things cleaner in the long run, especially for users wanting to peruse the function notes and editors cleaning up the notes.

Although it is a good idea I don't think our infrastructure can support it...
