Bug Description

When I try to subset a embed a epub file, it failed. The problem is that the epub file contains a character which is U+22FF1, not in the Unicode 0 plane, but in the 2 plane. Thus the ord() function in Python2 can not handle it, which documented at .
I raised two idea here,
1. Use a special calibre_ord function(if we have) to instead the ord, this calibre_ord can handle the 1-17 plane of Unicode specially.
2. According to , we can use python bits which complied with --enable-unicode=ucs4.

What's your idea?
