Neat! In my case, my ~/.shrc is already quite lengthy with lots (I mean LOTS) or aliases and functions. Why not add more :)

This is the simplest solution, but I was looking for a soution that meant I could just type rm and it will intuitively either use -i or -rf. Yes, I am that lazy that I only want to type 2 letters!
