I know Adobe has invested considerably in creating many complete Unicode 
fonts, not sure if any are free but I could check... even if not free it 
may be remotely possible for someone to pay for and donate an unlimited 
font license to be distributed with a free product or some such special 
deal to be worked out...  I see many interesting links on their web site 
but nothing immediately obvious regarding this subject...
