Wouldn't bother but is a valid route to the 'cut and paste' snippet from Google:
When I log into [google.com...] and choose the 'edit' link to the right of the 'view reports' link I go to where i can set up the goals.
On the top right hand corner of the top table, displaying goal setup info and edit links, is a link 'check status'. I click that link and I'm on a page that offers me the 'legacy tracking code' snippet on one tab and the 'new tracking code' on the other tab.
