Given my lack of knowledge and experience, I realize that my comments
must be severely discounted.
The ligatures I mentioned almost always have glyphs defined in the

removes things like the strange glyphs I use for transliterating
Perhaps it is a matter of just hooking the spokes up to the wheel, or
at least the more obvious spokes.
