### Is there ⦃⦄ in some standard package for [pdf]latex?

I would like to get the open curly brackets ⦃ and ⦄ with pdlatex and latex (not with {xe|lua}latex). Is it possible to get these symbols without loading stix (or, at least, without loading all of stix, though using a font slot for only two chars might be a waste if you have too many fonts already)?

Example:
\documentclass{article}% Something very clever here implementing \lBrace as ⦃ and \rBrace as ⦄.\begin{document}$$\lBrace s\mapsto t\widehat{\ \,\ }u \rBrace$$ % Some maths here including ↦ and the wide hat  ̂ .\end{document}
