Bug#152361: Alternitives system

Yes, it would be good to link to alternatives.  awk, mt, nt, are vi can easily have an a busybox link called as an alternative -- since busybox changes behavior based on how it is called the alternative system works wonderfully... (did it manually on my box)  Perhaps busybox could provide, and be listed as an alternative for  awk, mt, nt, and vi.?  I suggest a low number for alternatives (like maybe 1)

Many of the other packages (DC, for example) have the same binary name as the busybox form -- I do not think it would be a good idea to provide these... it may make it too easy to break my system... and I cannot see how to put these into the alternative system.
