Thanks.  I wonder if we could make the output more human-readable...
Glenn, any advice or comments?

Is that a free font (it's from Google, AFAIK, so it might not be)?  If
it is free, we could modify fontset.el to use this font if available.
(Or maybe there are better free Emoji fonts out there?)

I don't think matching backwards is better in general.  Did you have a
reason for thinking it was?

If the sequences are 7 character long, then the forward-matching
pattern will hit the same limitation as well, no?

The ones in http://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/12.0/emoji-sequences.txt,
and specifically the flag sequences and the skin color sequences.  At
least AFAIU the original report.
