[Haskell-cafe] Creating an alias for a function

How do I create an alias for a function, like giving CAR the same functionality as HEAD. I know I can do it by creating a definition (see below), but is there a better way, like Scheme's

(define head car)

car ::  [a] -> a
car x = head x

The reason for doing this is to more closely mirror legacy code.
