It's for all kinds of Unicode symbols, not just those that have emoji
Sometimes I find myself searching by the "real" Unicode name, and
sometimes by keyword, if I don't know what I'm looking for.

I keep tweaking it to provide better results, and I'm pretty pleased
with its current state.
It currently has a ranking algorithm based on what it matched on
(name, annotation/emojione keyword), and how successfully.
