Done. Updates @ GitHub now.

What I did is to store the Unicode arrow glyphs from DejaVu in a class 
variable, so when loading a TrueType font the doesn't include them, we 
just grab them from there. I needed to scale them, to make them look 
reasonable, in particular with the handwritten like fonts.
