It's been in the last couple of releases, I think, although the newer
versions haven't appeared on the web site for some reason.

The <alias> and <sub-class-of> elements are supported in the input files,
although there are only a couple of them at the moment in the main data
file. Once the input database has a few more it will probably be worth
generating the extra output files to make lookups with them faster.
