comment bashrc lazy substitution
@MichaelHomer: Thank you! Surrounding the alias with single quotes and then replacing the extant single quotes with '\'' worked! If you place that as an answer I will accept it. Thank you!

Why the downvote? How could I improve the question? I've provided examples, failed attempts, and even the keyphrases that I tried to google on.

@WarrenYoung: You are correct, this particular instance could be a script. However, I would still like to know the answer as I do prefer aliases for other things and I'll certainly run into this. I could generalize your question into "why does Bash support aliases when anything could be a script."

comment Propose additional file descriptor “stdmeta”
Regarding the rest of the answer, the legacy app situation could be handled with a flag for those commands that support stdmeta to only use it with the --stdmeta flag for the foreseeable future.

comment Propose additional file descriptor “stdmeta”
Regarding the first paragraph, I've addressed with two examples that the idea is not to discard the data, but rather to let other applications that the output may be piped to to handled the output properly. ps prints metadata on stdout, curl prints metadata on stderr.

comment Is it more convenient to login to SSH using a password because SSH Keys need to be stored on each computer
The password does not have to be memorizable. You could set up a true random 64 character password that you carry in your wallet. If whoever gets hold of your wallet also knows that you are a server admin and for which servers, and knew to look in your wallet for the password, then you are likely to be in danger of rubber-hosing anyway.
