Used for what? Unless it is a dyslexic c-cedilla, my guess
on that one is that it actually *is* a c with a retroflex
hook, on analogy with IPA U+0282 and U+0290, and then
following the Americanist tradition of using the c symbol,
with appropriate diacritics, to represent the relevant
affricate articulatorily paired with the fricative. Thus
/c/ for a dental affricate, /c-hacek/ for a palato-alveolar
affricate, /c-underdot/ for a retroflex affricate, and so on.
