What is the use of Vector.aspect()? I understand what the method does, but not how or why to use it. What is a typical use case?

From the documentation online:

float aspect ( )
Returns the aspect ratio of this vector, the ratio of x to y.

I did some of my own testing, and it seems to return the vector's x-value divided by the y-value. For example, Vector2(4, 2).aspect() will return 2.0, since 4 / 2 == 2.0.

Yeah, I read the documentation, I know what an aspect ratio is, and I understand what the method does; my question is what is its use? When, in game development, is it useful to know the aspect ratio of a vector, and what can be done with that information?
