Zinit now supports loading a plugin or snippet with a NICK-NAME. Set the nickname through the new id-as'' ice-mod. For example, one could try to load docker/compose from Github binary releases:

zinit ice as"program" from"gh-r" mv"docker-compose* -> docker-compose"
zinit light "docker/compose"

This registers plugin under ID docker/compose. Now the user could want to load a completion from Github repository (not the binary release catalog) also called docker/compose. The two IDs, both being docker/compose, will collide. The user can however resolve the conflict via id-as'' ice-mod by loading the completion under a nick-name dc-completion:

zinit ice as"completion" id-as"dc-completion"
zinit load docker/compose

The completion is now seen under ID dc-completion. Issuing zinit report dc-completion works, so as other Zinit commands:

 ▲ ~ zinit report dc-completion
Plugin report for dc-completion

_docker-compose [enabled]

This can be also used to nickname snippets. For example, you can use this to create handlers in place of long urls:

zinit ice as"program" id-as"git-unique"
zinit snippet https://github.com/Osse/git-scripts/blob/master/git-unique

zinit delete git-unique will work, zinit times will show git-unique instead of the URL, etc.
