You can see the difference when you copy and paste characters that are
not in your font. For example: "⊥" is not present in Terminus.

There is a problem I have: character is now displayed, but it is larger
than my font so there are some glithes. I think fallback code should
never use characters from fonts larger than current font size.

I have found better solution now: use font "Terminus:pixelsize=16:lang=af"
or choose some other language. This way you can zoom.

lang can be "be", "mo", "wo" and many other variants, they all trigger
"x" version of Terminus as you can check with fc-match.

Right solution would be to specify "charset", but I have not found how
to do it properly.
