Reprojecting data with Postgis 2.0

There are so many awesome new features in PostGIS 2.0 but one of my favorites is the UpdateGeometrySRID function.  If you needed to reproject data in old versions you had to use a combination of Transform and SetSRID functions.  Now all you need to do is:

SELECT UpdateGeometrySRID('schema', 'table','geometry_column', SRID);

Easy peasy!

If this was available before 2.0 please travel back and time and tell me.  It will save me a few headaches.
