Can you guys stop this? This isn't very polite to people who has come to us
with a request for characters. We've told them what the criteria are: show
us lots of non-logo real usages of the character in plain text. We've also
told them to consider using the PUA (a good short-term solution for their
immediate local printing and processing needs) and to consider using
combining character technology, in which case their character/logo/thingy
is already encoded for real and they can rejoice.
