I meant one with the appropriate repertoire.

See TODO, I think.  However, checking the large number of
tiny-repertoire fonts that are randomly encoded as iso10646 that you
might have under XFree86, for instance, seems like bad news.  You at
least have to load them to extract information.

[The issue of which fonts you use is actually orthogonal to which
charsets you decode into, as long as you have the translation tables
available.  The CCL for the font encoding may not exist currently in
cases where it would be useful, but it is trivial to provide.  See
examples which update `font-ccl-encoder-alist'.]
