Keep Emoticons as Text

Disables the default WordPress option of converting emoticons to image smilies

As of the release of 4.3, WordPress removed the "Formatting" section from the Writing settings. Included in there was the option to turn off WordPress's default action to convert text emoticons to image smilies. This plugin does the same thing as unchecking the "convert to smilies" box that used to be available via the settings.

Does this add any overhead to WordPress?

No, it's one line of code. It's being posted as a plugin for convenience for those who don't want to edit their theme functions file.
