If you need this, we can make it.

I'm concerned about your argument -- I have my doubts how many people use FreeMono for graphical work, and how many would get it in their heads to use the (rather fictional) capital sharp-s. In German, the standard in upper-case text is to render ß as SS (it's not just a convention: Germans like standards).

Identity of coverage between the faces in FreeFont is not a high priority, and there are other bigger problems right now...

Please add missing latin capital letter sharp s in FreeMono, U+1E9E ẞ

Already implementations of these exist for FreeSans and FreeSerif. Also latin small letter sharp s is implemented for all three fonts.

Implementing this glyph will allow users to use latin capital letter sharp s in FreeMono, especially for sings, titling and other graphical work but of course also for word in upper case such as names in running texts.
