I guess that's one way to look at it.
Another way is that mysql_insert_id() is consistent with all the other
mysql_ functions in that it requires arguments that are appropriate for
the type of information you're requesting. :-)
In this particular case, the insert-id is maintained on a connection-specific
basis, so it would be strange for it to require a result resource rather than
a connection identifier.
