I think it would be simpler and cleaner to define a new script,
'emoji', and update admin/unidata/blocks.awk to produce it for the
relevant blocks (including Variation Selectors, btw).  Then no change
is needed in face_for_char, since that is only in effect for the
'symbol' script.  As a nice bonus, this will also allow a much easier
customization of the fontsets, so that fonts for symbols can be
different from fonts for emoji.

There's an issue with the codepoints in the U+2XXX and U+3XXX blocks:
some of them can have Emoji glyph variations, but putting them into
the 'emoji' script is probably not a good idea, as long as Emacs
selects a font based on a single character.  I guess we will have to
leave them in 'symbol' for now.

The file admin/notes/unicode tells what has to be done when a new
script is added to Emacs.
