While I personally don't use the toolbar more than once a week, this
has bugged several people on the GNU/Linux systems I administer
because they're accustomed to inserting smileys via the button. It's
just handier to have it there.

Couldn't it be changed so it's customisable? I'm not a big fan of the
new layout, but I do see some advantages as long as the user still has
the choice to display things the way he wants.

If I can find the time sometime this week, I may write a patch for
it.. not sure if I'll have time any time soon, though, with college
and wget already (/me wants to do so much that he doesn't have time
