Thanks very much for putting in all that effort, and congratulations

I guess it maps codepoints it doesn't support to an empty glyph
instead of leaving them undefined, thereby preventing substitution.
Dishonourable mentions also for Envy Code R, Inconsolata, and
Liberation Mono for having empty default glyphs instead of the usual
box that at least shows that something is amiss.
