It certainly is possible, and what I'll probably do is set it
up so that either alias will work. 

The interesting point is, isn't "phala-bhakti", i.e., bhakti
as an end in and of itself, very important to us? I am trying
to make a distinction between bhakti as a means (upaaya) and
bhakti as a goal, since all of us are trying to presumably
achieve unbridled, loving devotion to the Lord.
