Then you hack KMail's code. It's really that simple.

You are missing the point that I want to use a single emoticon theme for 
all of KDE. I don't want the emoticons in Kopete to look different from 
the emoticons in KMail. I just want less emoticons in KMail. And I'm 
not alone. The functionality to not convert (a)-(z) to emoticons in 
KMail was added because KMail's users asked for this functionality. 
OTOH, nobody has ever asked for (c) to be replaced by © or some 

As such, I'm all for keeping the exclude argument of parseEmoticons().
