Monte, what I want is consistent syntax for all mobile commands.  If
translating the size parameters that are accepted by iOS so that Android
has the same syntax, then so be it.  When including the size parameters in
a script, yes I want the engine to use those parameters to create the next
image to that size.  The templateimage can revert to the default settings
afterwards if it must.
