Oops. It's me that's opaque. I know you knew all that, so I was 
preaching to myself. Bloviating. Preaching to the choir. Blathering. 
Talking to hear myself.

But me either. I mean, I don't know if there's any difference. I use 
"put" more than "set" just because I'm so used to it and habit is a hard 
thing to break. Mark Waddingham uses "set" because he thinks of 
everything in terms of base syntax and I suspect under the hood that 
putting an image really sets it. Or at least, that's my theory and I'm 
sticking to it.
