Can anyone tell me what's the difference between the Clip (raster) tool in Data Management versus Extract by Mask?

I think this is just some overlapping functionality. Clip didn't have the option to use the polygonal extent prior to Arc10 (it used the square extent of the polygon). Now you have extract by mask, clip, or the export with selected graphic (convert your selected polygon to a graphic first) that all give you an output clipped to an irregular polygonal shape.
