Running it through AAT-info.tex, I realized that the commands to get 
names of AAT features are broken in 0.9. :-(

Having fixed them, I see that the correct setting would be:

	"Hoefler Text:All Typographic Features=!All Type Features"

which does work to disable this ligature. However, that turns 
*everything* off, even standard ligatures like "fi", etc., so it's not 
really a great workaround.
