Well, in terms of Everson Mono, if you had an em of 1725 to contain  
"ffl", linking them would be intensely ugly; it wouldn't be a ligature  

I've been building in more "dlig" support for the Latin and Armenian  
presentation forms, which are all kept at an em of 575. For the  
aligning purpose you mention, you'd want the Discretionary Ligation to  
be "off".

I've just added in "ccmp" support for Dagesh and other marks to the  
Hebrew presentation forms.

I've been doing some work on Ethiopic, but there are too many  
characters there to add into the font until FontLab 6 comes out. The  
font now has 6,395 glyphs (6,388 characters) in it so it is full until  
the new tool is available to me.

I've posted up version 5.1.5.
