Hmmm, for the Home icon, why don't we currently use 
$cfg['DefaultTabServer'] instead of forcing "main.php" inside 
libraries/navigation_header.inc.php ?

Another point: if we change the default $cfg['LeftLogoLink'], many 
people who just copy their older config file won't see the change...
Not a big problem I guess?
