Thanks for this PR, this has been discussed before #9079. My only concern is #9079 (comment)

Oops, I should have searched a bit more, sorry.

To be honest, about your comment, I don't see a problem with a potentially huge list of things there:

  • One single alias is the most common situation, so this error message would be great in these cases;
  • Perhaps two or three aliases could indeed happen a few times, although never happened to me, but three aliases still isn't that much. And the more aliases that are defined, the less common it is.
  • And regardless of the above, at least personally, I don't mind huge error messages at all. What bugs me is short error messages that aren't useful. In fact, I am thankful that this error message is already very useful (compared to error messages from other JS libraries around), but it still could be better.

Usually this is an error that crashes the application, will be seen immediately by the developer, and I am positive that he/she wouldn't mind an error message that saves time, even if it is huge. Every time this happened to me, it took me a while to find out the correct alias...

Thanks @papb

Totally agree with you, error message should help developer as much they can.
