Modern does not necessarily mean better. For instance, I have a large
collection of commercial fonts where f+i do not automatically form the
fi ligature although the fi glyph exists in the font. With
Mapping=somethig I know how to build the map file that contains an
additional rule f+i->fi. I do not know how to do it with the Ligatures
