My mistake. Those two ranges have the 'Extended_Pictographic' property
in emoji-data.txt, not 'Emoji', so I should just ignore those (and for
consistency not set the individual codepoints within mahjong-tile and
domino-tile as emoji). My nice clean awk script is growing warts :-)

If we put the specific codepoints in the 2XXX and 3XXX blocks that
have 'Emoji' property in the emoji script, they'll display by default
with a nice font, and will be composed if they're followed by
FE0F. Would that be such a bad thing?
