Accessing characters from JS is problematic when you get into Emoji or
extended Unicode ranges where some “characters” are actually multiple, like
the “family” emojis 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

The current solution is a messy RegEx pattern matching specific ranges of
characters (see some discussion here
https://github.com/shshaw/Splitting/issues/25).Having a built in RegEx
matched to target ligatures/combined characters Would be a huge help.
