I have a funny - if I create a feature class via import XML workspace document the alias is just the feature class name eg COUNTY, but if I create it using arcpy.CreateFeatureclass_management the alias is schema name '.' feature class name eg GISLOADER.COUNTY.

I have not found a means to set the alias when the feature class is created, and as much as I read that 10.1 will have arcpy.AlterAliasName I'm at 10.0.

Any pointers in sorting this out, using ArcCatalog or arcpy ?
