I went ahead and added fallback support on top of Quentin's patch, and
I've attached it to this email. Although I took the UTF-8 code and
general methodology from st, I also looked at [urvt's Xft font code][1]
(relevant part starts at line 1759), and my fallback font logic is
slightly different from st's as a result. I will push the Xft patch
combined with my fallback font changes to the wiki in the future after
I'm sure that the change doesn't introduce any major bugs. Constructive
criticism is welcome and appreciated.
