Summary description:  Emoji for all (LaTeX engines)

Announcement text:

 Since we need our best humor on April 1, here are nicely improved
 emo•ji for all (LaTeX engines):

 * Use "emo-" prefix for graphics and font files to uniquely identify
   the package.

 * Use pdftex to extract files from emo.dtx without building documentation.

 * Include LaTeXML binding for conversion to HTML.

 * Replace broken lingchi.otf with working emo-lingchi.ttf—notice the
   .ttf extension vs the previous .otf. Under LuaLaTeX, drawing a box
   around 凌遲 resulted in a box with zero height—even though both fonts
   have the same OS/2 and hhea tables. Suspecting some issue with the CFF
   tables, I created a TrueType version, which works. Go figure!
