When Gears is enabled, the gears-manifest.php is checked quite often for
changes/updates. It's also set to no-cache headers, so it's always fresh
from the server.
Since all images in WordPress don't change often at all, hard-coding the
URLs saves some disk I/O on the server.
Generating the list of scripts and css files accesses only couple more
of php files (script-loader, etc.) and is a lot cheaper.
