Not me, but LuaTeX.
My reply to Mojca got grey-listed. I'm neither advocating using
ligature characters in input nor in patterns. I just wanted to know how
LuaTeX handles those characters.

I never complained about LuaTeX's not being able to hyphenate correctly
in presence of ligature characters. Rather I wanted to get an idea
whether and how I should handle those characters when manipulating node
lists myself, but couldn't make head nor tail of LuaTeX's output. Now I
know it's not worth caring about those characters. Thanks again!
