      Description

      This feature is aimed at providing shortcuts for frequently used commands like illustrate, dump, explain, describe, quit, help etc. This feature is inspired from postgres(psql) shortcuts. I tried implementing a simple shortcut for quitting the grunt shell using \q with very minimal changes. I think this feature will help save many keystrokes for users. If this feature looks useful I can submit the current patch for review and go ahead with implementing the following shortcuts

      \i <alias> - illustrate
      \e <alias> - explain
      \de <alias> - describe
      \du <alias> - dump
      \h - help

      This will also be useful to view information about tables/statistics stored in HCatalog similar to the way psql does.
      \dt <alias> - display table
      \dm - display metadata
      etc..

      except \t, \r and \n delimiters we should be able to use all other characters as shortcuts.
      Please let me know your thoughts.
