Disabling imenu default of thing-at-point

imenu currently uses (thing-at-point 'symbol) to offer a default in
completing read. It's very helpful when symbol at point is one of the
options, but not really useful when not. It's particularly inconvenient
when using ido for completing read (e.g., with ido-ubiquitous), since it
makes M-x imenu RET not do anything instead of jumping to the first

The fix is one-line (below), but the unhelpful (for me) default seems to
be coded explicitly. Would this patch break anyone else's use of imenu?
