mule-unicode-2500-33ff overlaps with one of the CJK blocks.  You want
to avoid translating the part that overlaps to mule-unicode-2500-33ff
so that the block is displayed in a consistent font by default.  Is
that clear?

I would have expected them to have iso10646 fonts if they are using
utf-8 (for the sake of applications other than Emacs) but maybe that
isn't the case.  You are obviously in a better position than I am to
decide the right thing.

I may have the remains of the partial implementation somewhere.  It
almost looks attractive again, as I guess there is no likelihood of
Emacs 22 being released remotely soon...
