There was some talk in the dev list about adding the 'alias name' to the
create database statement, so that the alias could be created automatically,
but can't remember why it was decided not to do it.

I don't think the ability to create/edit/remove alias information has been
added to the API in FB1.5, but if it has, or will be, it should be possible
to update FBManager to also create/remove the alias when DB's are
created/dropped I suppose?
