0 is present in all TrueType fonts - it is typically a box, though in some
cases it can also be blank.

I think the right thing to do is:

 Create a PANGO_UNKNOWN_FLAG in some private header and use it consistently
 across all backends (we have a bunch of UNKNOWN flags now, all with the
 same value)

 Make pangocairo-render.c draw a box itself for anything marked with this
 flag rather than passing it to cairo. (Doing hex boxes in pangocairo-render.c
 is an open work item, but empty boxes are a simple first step.)

The patch in this bug should be applied, of course.
