Summary description: Emoji for all (LaTeX engines)

Announcement text:

Emo implements the \emo{⟨emoji-name⟩} command for including color emoji such as 🏝
(\emo{desert-island}) or 🦜 (\emo{parrot}) in your documents independent of input
encoding or LaTeX engine. The implementation uses the Noto color emoji font if the engine
supports it and includes PDF graphics otherwise. The latter are automatically derived
from Noto’s SVG sources, so the visual appearance is very similar. The source repository
is at Emo may come in particularly handy when dealing
with academic publishers that provide only minimal support for non-Latin scripts (cough,
ACM, cough).
