Pidgin sending custom emoticons

If you want Pidgin to send custom emoticons you need to apply a patch as its out of tree at the moment.

A source file created by my friend Twain28 is here:
http://www.hannent.eu/pidgin-2.4.0devel-patched.7z

and if you are after a windows binary:
http://www.hannent.eu/pidgin-2.4.0devel-no-gtk1102.exe

The patch and trac entry is here:
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/1187

If you are using this give me a shout, my MSN address is (remove the NO-SPAM):
philip@NO-SPAMhannent.co.uk

or just post to the trac to say it works for you.
