You can try
something like

   (set-fontset-font "fontset-default" '(#x2047 . #x204B) "FreeMono")

and then try typing characters from this range and also a few outside
of it, but still between 2000..206F -- is the result acceptable?  It
looks weird on my system, but I think I'm less sensitive to these
issues, so I'm not sure about others.

For those two characters FreeMono does look nicer. There are a few other characters where perhaps some people would prefer FreeMono too. It's not a big deal, though. Perhaps we should just leave it that way until someone with real experience with those symbols (i.e., not me) needs to use them in real text.

The currency symbols look worse than before: they used to be constant-width
(most of them anyway) and matched Ubuntu Mono better.  Perhaps we should leave
them alone?

Which font did they use before?

Kind of a mishmash; see below. Ah, now I see which ones don't line up in the fixed-width font: it's the three at the end, which use Symbola. It's this lack of lining-up that is one of the hassles with Symbola.
