not in my eyes. you understand what is in your script and are looking
for what is the in the new scripter. well, just look it up in the
new documentation.
if the new documentation is well done, this should be almost as fast as
looking it up in a specific list, but you will have learned how the new
documentation is built.
so: personally, i prefer concentrate on a good documentation for the
new scripter.

and i'm happier if people put their efforts in contributing to
something that will be useful for a longer time.

but you're free to do as *you* prefer or see fit! :-)
