Use cases for this character would be helpful in deciding how important it is to add.

It is mainly used in the Greek numerals (Ι think ... I am not an expert in typography...)

For example:

instead of

http://imagebin.ubuntu-gr.org/1360770992.png

In my thesis I have used U+0027 in its place which is similar (if I remember correct ).
I believe that it could be a permanent solution but am I not an expert in typography ...

What I wrote is only for the greek ... I am not sure if it has other uses in other languages ...

Anagno: I was hunting around your Git trees earlier:

  https://github.com/anagno/

to see if I could find the actual LaTeX code snippet that has caused this to be output. Would you be able to help track it down, in order to provide a minimal test sample, and see where it is originating from?

It was from my NTUA thesis and it is not in github. A small example that if is executed with latex produces minimal.pdf
