In your .pymolrc, you probably just import the file/module, and then issue an extend command to the module.function with the wanted new shortcut name

I have a number of python scripts that I use regularly. I would like to create shortcuts for these in my .pymolrc. For instance,

alias co, color_obj

Unfortunately, aliases cannot take arguments (using MacPyMOL 1.3). Is there a way to create aliases for commands that require arguments? I could modify the cmd.extend() call in each python script, but I'd rather do it from my .pymolrc since some scripts are shared.
