Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if Adobe symbol fonts provided Unicode
mappings for their glyphs. I'm sure there are other custom fonts which
don't though, like maybe the LaTeX math fonts. I just don't want to skip
legit fonts, I only want to skip bogus bitmaps.

Perhaps we can just use the presense of some BDF properties to detect
BDF-derived non-Unicode bitmap fonts?
