Too bad it is over the edge, for if it wasn't it could have been encoded as
Supplementary characters for chinese rods base-100 digits 0-99.
Left half of the glyph looks like space or 10-90.
Right half looks like space or 1-9.
Assigned in such a way that the 18 cinese rod numerals plus two extra spaces
behave as if they were assigned to surrogate code points.
