You can probably modify the tfms to get rid of the ligatures.  (ff,
fi, fl, ffi, ffl.)  Munge Deja-Google... someone has probably had the
same peeve.  You may even be able to do something at the tex
layer... but thinking more deeply, it's getting hideous to
contemplate.  Doing it in the font is the better way.
