where did you get those new lists and the change? could you explain what it's doing exactly? has that been suggested upstream too?

Upstream will not accept the change because msn-pecan is a plugin, a proper fix from pidgin will be http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/5667 .
The patch is based on http://code.google.com/p/msn-pecan/issues/detail?id=5 comments. The patch add all MSN smileys also if you are using WLM protocol (WLM is the protocol name used in msn-pecan).

does that mean that your change would not work for people who don't have this plugin installed?

No, the change would not work for people who don't have the plugin because they don't need it, the patch is only valid for msn-pecan. There are no regressions.

could you describe a way to trigger the issue and add screenshots showing the difference? the description is not really clear and there is no strong reason ubuntu should use a change if upstream consider is not good enough

unsubscribing the sponsor team that doesn't seem a change we want over upstream if they refuse to use it
