may I suggest two new symlinks: newfs_ufs for newfs and newfs_hammer1 for newfs_hammer ?

We currently have:
For unambiguous consistency; could we have the following links ?
/sbin/newfs_hammer1 -> /sbin/newfs_hammer
/sbin/newfs_ufs -> /sbin/newfs
Possible use cases I can think of: You have a table with a given list of file-systems from which, for example, you want to create the FSTAB file or to create the file-systems via script. The file-system IDs column on said table could be directly linked to each respective newfs command without making IF/ELSE exceptions for newfs for ufs and hammer for hammer. I think it could be useful, does not changes anything, and more importantly does not break anything. And for starters reading the man pages newfs_ufs could make more sense than newfs. The first time I saw newfs I expected a -t for FStype switch associated to each specific newfs_whatever command. It proved not to be the case.
