[Pkg-telepathy-maintainers] Bug#540655: empathy: is missing nearly all of the icons/emoticons/smileys for MSN chats

Package: empathy
Version: 2.26.2-1
Severity: normal


I know a lot of people with MSN accounts and I use Empathy to
communicate with them. However, Empathy is missing a lot of the usual
icons/emoticons/smileys that can be used in  MSN chats, including some
more exotic ones like Cat and Dog but also some more common ones. This
is a regression from pidgin which offered a redrawn set of icons
featuring substitutes for *all* of the standard MSN icons. This bug is
espacially annoying since all these icons are still installed on the
system via the pidgin-data package (that has been pulled in by
telepathy-haze and libpurple0) but aren't used by Empathy.
