So far we are:

+1 from me
+1 from Simon
-1 from Pasi
+0 from David

Can we get more votes from the team? :-)

We're revisiting this now since Xfce 4.14 is just around the corner, bringing with it GTK+3 and native emoji support. In any native input or text area, you can now right click, select "Insert Emoji", and display an emoji picker [2]. Emoji are even supported in the terminal! Firefox and Thunderbird include their own native color emoji support. If emoji are going to be everywhere, I think users benefit from Xubuntu providing full support for them.
