Seems abandoned. The author hasn't had any activity on github since May
2015. Several issues and PR's have accumulated. Mind you, it still works
well overall. Looking more into this, there's already been some
discussion about it: https://github.com/sabof/org-bullets/issues/18

Why not, if you don't mind me asking? Other major modes (python, elisp,
and latex off the top of my head) setup prettify-symbols themselves.

I'm fine putting it into org-XXX.el if you want. I didn't for now since
it's only a few lines of code.

Thanks for the comments!
