I agree. If we are going to do this, a set of 4 geometric symbols makes
sense: the half black star, left and right, and the half and half
black/white star, left and right.

We aren't likely to start down the road of making this kind of symbol
tally display automatic bidi-mirroring. These aren't math operators --
but the half stars just as more symbols would be useful. And if somebody
can turn up convincing evidence of use of star symbols cut in half on a
horizontal axis, those would be interesting, too.

Oh, and please don't come around next asking for a green rotten splat
and a red certified fresh tomato!!
