Matching a Text Corpus to a Bunch Of Fonts With FFPython and Unicode?

This is, I suppose, a “Dear Lazy” kind of question…

Could one use the python scripting of FontForge to:

  1. Load a range of fonts and write out the unicode values of the glyphs contained in the fonts, eg as \u0456 values.
  2. Load a text corpus and write out the unicode values of the charachter in a similar way.
  3. And then compare them to list out the unicode values of glyphs used in the text but missing in the fonts.

? :-)
