No, this won't work. graphics.sty itself looks up the graphics files
to be included, as far as I understand the code.

\graphicspath takes a *list* of arguments. It's proper use would be,

\graphicspath{{FolderA},{FolderB}}	% take it from either this, or
that, or somewhere else ...

I am still a bit flexible so *I* can adjust myself or my customs to
kind of inadequacies of a software -- up to some extent! Your
extension has some charm. Do you need more motivation to propose it
to the TeX programmers?
