Jokes aside, we already support Egyptian hieroglyphs, see HELLO. But there are no fonts out there yet which can display them well enough, so for now this is a capability that waits for the typography world to catch up.

I know next to nothing about hieroglyphs, but on Debian the fonts-noto-core contains the Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphs font, which has a glyph for each egyptian hieroglyph.

Debian also has a fonts-ancient-scripts package, which contains the Aegyptus font, which also has a glyph for each egyptian hieroglyph. A more recent version of that font (but apparently with a more restrictive licence) can be seen here: https://dn-works.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/UFAS-Docs/Aegyptus.pdf and downloaded here: https://dn-works.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/UFAS-Fonts/Aegyptus.zip .
