Half-stars are used all over the place for reviews and many people have
expressed interest in a Unicode half star. I propose two new Unicode
characters: half a BLACK STAR (★) and a half-filled WHITE STAR (☆), i.e. a
half star without and with an outline. What do you think? Is there any
reason Unicode doesn't have a half star?
