Hi guys, bad news...

I was really animated with the possibility to help on some part of this 
project, but our customer sent us lots of adjustments on their IM 
client, and I won't have chance to get a look on this for a while.

Anyway, finishing our customer demands, and having a possibility to get 
some time to do this improvement on custom emoticon receiving, I'll get 
back to you.

Best regards, Mauro.
