Shouldn't be any problem. Many major websites use it, like the Google main page.

Yes, that's why I have re-added them in a later commit :-)

Yea, the way I did it for the original theme now is take the
sprites-block from theme_right.css.php, applied a bunch of regexps
from my favorite editor to turn 'ic_sdf { ... }'
into 'sdf.png', regexp'd it further to a php array and with 3 lines of
php code copied all these image files to a new folder.

That I zip together with any new sprites I need and use above
mentioned generator.

I can write a small php script to do that, but my shell script skills
are not that great :-(

Yes, I forgot to adjust original. This is fixed now.
