Neither supports SEARCHING within aliased subtrees.  That is,
alias support during FINDING is complete.  If the subtree
as the found base includes aliases, the aliased object will
be considered as a candidate for the search BUT objects
below the aliased object will not.   A complete implementation
would consider objects below the aliased object.
