hot_x, hot_y are really not the "hot spot" of the icon, but the
location where the hot spot of the cursor is located in the icon.

The main practical use of setting the hot spot is to provide for
"picking up" an icon - locating the hot spot at the point in
the icon where the user initially clicked. 

So, no, I don't generally think the hot spot is a property of the
icon, though it's possible that the "default hot spot" - the hot
spot for cases the icon doesn't correspond to the item the was
clicked on to initiate the drag - might depend on the icon.

Actually, this raises the point that including the hot spot in
gtk_drag_source_set_icon_pixbuf() and gtk_drag_source_set_icon_stock()
is a little dubious, and (thinking back on it) is probably why the
original gtk_drag_source_set_icon() did not take a hot spot,
but simply used -2,-2 always.
