No no, I didn't propose to remove $cfg['ThemePath']. It's just not
required any more when using icon sprites, because the theme path is
already supplied in the css file. So it does require it, but you don't
have to supply it for every icon you add.

It would just be helpful to have dot.gif at a static place, since it
will always stay the same, no matter how the theme is built
