Thank's for your sugestions Richard, but could you please clarify me 
about the file name note?
Even the buddyicon filename is stored on the blist.xml and I was 
intending to do so for custom emoticon xml file too, because I need to 
have a reference to the physical file.

Anyway, as suggested by salinasv I'll have a closer look on ticket 1187 
as it seems I'm duplicating functionality here.
