I don't agree with that document. I could also enlist a number of reasons why you should not use textinputs.


1. This makes document non-portable. I have several ongoing projects with my colleagues oversees. We share common documents with Dropbox (by the way, very useful texchnology) but we cannot share texinputs environment.


2. My projects are huge. I don't want to mix them in any way.


3. \grapicspath works with latex, pdflatex. Why should not it work with xetex? Where is you logics?


4. \grapicspath declares all paths to graphics files in one place; texinputs do this somewhere else and it is easy to forget exectly where.


5. e.t.c.
