Display all fonts providing a glyph

gucharmap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gucharmap

In the zoom window, gucharmap displays the name of the font where it found a
glyph. I would really appreciate to have a list of all the fonts providing the
glyph, and a preview of the corresponding version.

It can currently done by selecting each font in turn in the font selection
menu, and looking at the zoom window, but this is a tedious operation, which
can be automated.

This feature request was made in Gnome's gucharmap, but nothing has been done about it.
The patch looks substantial - https://bugzilla.gnome.org/review?bug=484357&attachment=96811

I'm bumping it over to here, maybe the ubuntu community complete this patch and backport it.
