Ah! I got misled by this bit in the Codex:


<?php get_sidebar('right'); ?>
Causes the template TEMPLATEPATH . 'sidebar-right.php' to be  
included. ...


 From the above, I assumed that TEMPLATEPATH would point to the child  
theme directory (so that template PHP files -- e.g: sidebar-right.php  
-- get picked up from the child).

Thank you for the correction Otto, and the advice Otto and Tynan.
