I understand, but I hope you are aware that Emacs cannot possibly
promise not to disrupt this alignment.  If you must align text, you
need to use the ':align-to' display property (assuming you are talking
about some specialized mode).

I guess you've updated your tree after I made a change that prefers
the Symbola font for symbols, but before I followed that up with a
change that caused Emacs to use the default font if it supports a
character, even though Symbola was preferred for them.
