Realizing how many script lines we have that use set<xx>Speed I thought of a workaround for the deprecated speed setting.
I am replacing all "i01.set<xx>Speed(...) in all py files with a call to set<xx>Speed() function.
I have added gesture files named set<xx>Speed for the parts that look like this:
def setArmSpeed(side, b, r, s, o):
i01.setArmVelocity(side, b*15, r*15, s*15, o*15)
where 15 is the maxVelocity of the sub parts.
