That is why this is optional, here look better with the option enable,
but that don't mean
that all like that way, so by default is disable.

This is not about what is "proper ligature", this is about give an
option to the user that want
a little more "readable font", nothing more, nothing else.

By default the blenfont library apply the kerning information and
don't touch anything more.

... so just give an option :)
