Comment (by gk):

 What about https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-
 The emoji in Linux works again after this update, but they're terrible.
 Most of the faces at http://apps.timwhitlock.info/emoji/tables/unicode
 #emoji-modal look like PacMan ghosts and their facial expressions aren't
 identifiable at typical font sizes on the web.


 Is it possible to just bundle Symbola, to support emojis?
