Gmail Smileys

Adrian L. found smileys* in his rich-text reply option in Gmail. I don’t see those myself. Is Gmail rolling out a new emoticons feature?

*You can clearly see different “smiley artists” working at Google here – their chat and email smileys don’t look the same at all.

Update: So apparently, this is from a Firefox extension... but Brian did find some traces of smileys in the Gmail code. More in the comments.
