Well, I can see that it might be technically difficult, but otherwise
the ability to recognize all symbols would be more powerful. I just
thought of it as a symbol. The page doesn't say that certain symbols
are not listed. Also, the classifier page listed above points to
which does give alphabetic-like symbols, see page 13 where there are
hookb, hookd, hookg, hookh and a few others.
