Actually what I'd really like is for the fontset magic of gdk to
automagically select the right unicode font corresponding to UCS_BULLET

Otherwise I like Paul says, I'd like remapglyphs to map a funny Unicode
list char iinto either the Symbol or Dingbats fonts.

I guess this solution would also be more Postscript friendly.
