--- Comment #9 from Nicolas Mailhot <nicolas.mailhot at laposte.net> ---
Anyway, it seems my defense of Google was a mistake. It seems they had the
bright idea to 'solve' interoperability problems by releasing a font that
reproduces the exact brokenness of symbol

This is too broken for thought and is going to break multiple unix apps that
rely on proper font encoding (in fact it is so broken our font packaging
guidelines didn't even envision it had to be protected against)

The font should be dropped from the distro. All the symbols it provides are
already present in our default fonts, its only purpose is to reproduce a
Microsoft encoding mistake and to confuse apps.
