Well, that's just a symptom of a more serious issue -- that selection of
glyphs beyond the orthography of the current locale is driven by font
suitability for the locale.
Perhaps what we need is a better sorting mechanism for FcFontSort.
What we want is for the list to include fonts that cover the specified
language(s) to be at the front of the list, and for the remaining elements
of the list to be sorted without regard to language.
That seems doable, but it may make FcFontSort even slower than it is today.
