For my MUDding, I use a font imaginatively named "Monospace", which
does most of what I want. There are a handful of characters that come
out as the "square with digits inside", but not huge blocks (certainly
not "everything non-BMP" or anything like that). It's fairly readable,
although I don't know about scaling - I run it at 14pt and nowhere
else. Comes with Debian.
