Hi, Daniel,

I've done a quick test and a few very popular (and more or less
complete) fonts don't include a glyph for the LEFTWARDS TRIANGLE-HEADED
ARROW #2b60 character: DejavuSans, Iosevka, Hack Source Code Pro,
JuliaMono or Fira Code. It is a very rare symbol.

I haven't seen it, but I'm not using the Git version.

I think Symbola should not be a dependency. I use this font just to be
able to display unusual symbols, especially on web pages when I browse
the web with eww-mode. The most reasonable thing would be to use a more
common symbol. But I'm still intrigued by the origin of that symbol...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
