[EversonMono] Swap half circles

Please do - I love ligatured letters, so much so that I built search tools
for text containing them, as well as conversion tool, into a programming
language I designed. Ligatured text is a joy of the hand-set books of the
late c19 and early c20. So, yes please.

Thanks for spotting that, Andrew. They've been like that for years!

I am pleased to announce that in addition to that fix, Everson Mono now
supports Ancient Greek Musical Notation U+1D200..1D24F. Adam Twardoch told
me that FontLab 6 will allow a larger set of characters, which will allow me
to expand support considerably.

Currently, Everson Mono has little in the way of OpenType features, but it
does have composition support for Egyptological Yod and Ugariticist A and U,
all of which are composed using U+0486 COMBINING CYRILLIC PSILI PNEUMATA.
There's also support for Gothic EIS with diaeresis. I know you've all been
waiting for that... ;-)

I wonder, should I add ligature support for the fi, fl, ff, ffi, and ffl
ligatures?

Version 5.1.4 is the current version.
