Add support for emoji in google talk

Incoming messages containing emoji currently show only a crossed square symbol. Mapping those to some pictures would solve the problem, but adding a font with the emoji code points would be enough to keep the meaning intelligible. Maybe it would fit the 'typographic' interface better as well.

Possibilities to explore:

  • symbola - this covers many characters, beyond emoji, it could be a useful fallback anyway, if the license is ok
  • Android emoji This seem to be part of the Android base layer... It may be useful on the android sandbox as well (or maybe it could be prepackaged?)
