[wp-hackers] TEMPLATEPATH in child themes

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I noticed that the constant  
TEMPLATEPATH points to the Parent Theme even when you have a Child  
Theme activated. Is this required for the Child Theme's missing files  
to default to the Parent Theme's files, or just a bug in that  
TEMPLATEPATH doesn't get updated with the child theme's path.

Its causing me a problem, which I can work around with a symlink, but  
was wondering if this is the expected behavior. Is there another  
CONSTANT that would point to the child theme properly?
