Emoticons have a option for two reasons:

* They're slightly buggy, try a sentence like "Thirty-eight (38) downloads."

We should fix that.

* It's inherited from the b2 days.

I think it might be worth removing the option for emoticons and also 
making them plugin opt-out, but ideally I'd like to see some usage data 
for the option first.
