Don't get the point of duplicating with bug 109207. We should consolidate both.

Bug 109207 is for bug reports or enhancements specifically arising from changes made during the GSoC, as you have titled it.

GSoC ended and we do not need two meta tickets to organize stuff. Please use only one and either rename GSoC or move the other tickets.

What I wanted to suggest for the new favourite characters is:
Instead of letting the user add quite a lot of favourite characters, let the user define sets of favourite charcaters for the following reasons: The special characters needed depend on the context (e.g. symbols for mathematical formulas, bullets for lists, foreign language characters, etc.) most of the time.
Also make sure that the user can see metadata of the favorite character selected (e.g. hovering displays some info bubble), as many characters may look very similar (consider the different types of dashes Unicode offers)
