I agree.

usableHeightNow and usableHeightPrevious don't even meet the requirements of meaningful naming.

They should be currentComputedValueOfUsableHeight and usableHeightExtantBeforeTheCurrentValueWasComputed




[edit] What a time to typo "extant"! Open a ticket; the bloody code won't compile! [/edit]
