thank you for trying to improve Debian.
The .bashrc file in fresh user accounts is derived from /etc/skel/.bashrc,
which is created by the base-files package. To make your suggestion, you would
therefore report a bug with a severity wishlist against this package.
This said, be prepared to be disappointed by the answer. On a distribution
that targets a broad range of users, /etc/skel/.bashrc, can only be minimal.
Imagine that your alias pleases 90 % of the users and annoys the 10 %
remaining. With a bunch of aliases that have non-overlapping user bases, we
would quickly grow towards a very high probablity of annoying any of our users
But there are countless other ways where you can help Debian. You can have a
look at http://www.debian.org/intro/help for a start.
