Imagick::destroy() has been deprecated in favor of Imagick::clear().

Destroy and clear methods seem to do exactly the same thing
@see (l.3066 & l.3087)

The code is duplicated, they do the same thing a bit differently.

One might be suprised that there seems to be no difference between:

= new Imagick();


= new Imagick();

Both functions reset all options and clear all used resources so you might want to use either one of them.
