any benefit of using more keys for the same task? o_O?

Nope. It's a command line just for fun. It's possible to improve this cli by removing the last parameter, so you will be able to write : > can i haz ls -a ? . .. Then, by aliasing cheezburger, > chan i haz cheezburger ? nyan > Come on guys, that's humor ! '_'
