That Post, and Justin's comment, were written before WordPress 2.9 was even
released. The comment to which you refer should hardly be taken as gospel
now, a full year hence.

Resizing and cropping are handled just fine by the WordPress core
functionality. If you need to regenerate previous Thumbnail sizes, try
the Regenerate
Thumbnails <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/>plugin.
I can attest that it works just fine, as I often have to use it when
changing from Theme to Theme for reviews.

FYI, this post by Mark
also linked from that same Codex page, is considerably more instructive for
your custom-thumbnail-size needs.
