I have fired sysadmins who try this crap. NEVER redefine dangerous commands, create new ones and use those. I had a manufacturing line offline for a week because of things like this.

Use del or rmm or srm, anything, just not rm.

plus the fallout from the unexpected action for scripts could cause more damage.

What about on a personal system?
If you are the only user, why shouldn't you be able to change commands as you see fit.
I don't want to change my rm, but if someone does and no one else has to use that computer, I don't see why they shouldn't be able to.
