Well, there is no entry in `toolbarx-default-toolbar-meaning-alist'
corresponding to `new-file'.  So if it is offered in
`TeX-bar-LaTeX-buttons', the implementation should be added.

Sure.  But the stuff should at least work in Emacs 21.  Ideally we'd
also not have no-ops or identical functionality under different names.

So on XEmacs both entries will mean the same.

I just played a bit with `find-file' and `menu-find-file-existing' and
the distinction looks rather artificial to me, so I would not bother if
we did not support the latter.

Me neither.

If we dropped XEmacs compatibility we'd not have a need for toolbar-x
anymore.  This is not the worst option in my opinion.

Can we perhaps make the `dired' option available only on platforms which
have the respective image?  Providing the option and then doing nothing
or throwing an error when it is used is not so good.
