Is U+0140 (l with middle dot) ever used?

U+0140 LATIN SMALL LETTER L WITH MIDDLE DOT is intended to be used in
Catalan ('ŀl' is pronounced as two separate 'l' while 'll' is pronounced
as in 'million'). However, it seems that neither Yahoo nor Google use
that character in their own pages; similarly for an online newspaper
(, but I don't know how "serious" they are.

Instead, everybody seems to use U+006C U+00B7 U+006C. Is that the
preferred encoding for Catalan?

Is U+0140 used in other languages?
