Add detection of typefaces that contain color glyphs

Project Member Reported by jvanverth@google.com, Mar 24 2014

Issue description

Currently neither distance field nor NVPR font rendering support color emoji and other color glyphs. However, there is no way to detect this prior to choosing the rendering method, so both will try to render and simply fail. It would be better if there was a way to detect typefaces that contain color glyphs before we choose the rendering method, and have it fallback to standard bitmap rendering in that case.
