 fix reversed floorleft and floorright in freesans
 These two glyphs are inverted.
 Already fixed in upstream SVN but we won't see a release anytime soon.

 drop broken braille range
 The Braille range here is useless at any but very large fonts sizes.
 Upstream SVN already includes drop of these glyphs, and a new set placed
 in FreeSerif rather than FreeMono.
 As FreeMono is a part of Debian's default GUI installation, and our setup
 makes fontconfig prefer taking glyphs from here rather than other fonts that
 have them in working order, the effect is making this range unreadable
 without a specific user change of configuration.
 This is done as a patch to .sfd rather than a fontforge strip script because
 1. it's simpler (but uglier), 2. won't stay around when the new upstream
 release finally happens.
