I don't know if any font has *full* unicode coverage. I think GNU Unifont comes closest to this (but you already know about it), GNU Freefont does also have a decent coverage, and last but not least Dejavu:

LaTeX documents which can contain any character from that range, and I
can not safely change the font in one LaTeX because of technical
limitations of LaTeX (changing fonts inside headings is not allowed
but needed). If you got such a font, just tell me and I will be happy.
If you don't I already made my own combining (wqyzenhei + unifont +
freeserif + linuxlibertine). According to


its is simple to create a package and I will do this. But I would like
to get it included into debian, and that is why I here first.

To be honest, I don't think Debian needs packages of a "bastardized" font that is composed of other fonts that are already packaged in Debian. No offense intended, but I understood that this is what you proposed to do.
