I have no clue what you mean. Shortcuts are only used to match the 
requested module name while probing a module (module_need() and 

A module does not even by which shortcut (if any) it was designated - 
although in some cases the module_need() caller may store some 
type-specific infos (e.g. access_t.psz_access).

Shortcuts have no effects on configuration whatsoever.
