[...] The fakery is probably good. centigrade (or celsius) needs some kerning
between the degree sign and the capital C to look roght. This was the reason
why I added it as a separate symbol to the tc fonts.

The one with the bar is probably the same symbol. The two others have a
strange, old-fashioned look. (The `Pt'-digraph was long persistent on IBM
codepages, but of questionable value).

Yes, the logic of the tc fonts is to discriminate pilcrow with one stem and
paragraph with double stem in order to have them both a differentiated symbols.
If the base font does not provide differentiated pilcrows, the paragraph is
always the primary symbol (needed for LaTeX footnote symbols).
