The advantage is that when you leave some trace of the old command, you
make it easier for someone to debug a script that used to work, but now
doesn't. In fact, this is how I recognized Christian's likely error, and
didn't make the same one myself.


PS The scripter API documentation in 1.5.0 says:

scaleImage(x, y [, "name"])
Do not use this command, since it no longer works. Use setImageScale

and setScaleImage() immediately follows.
