@be5invis what would be the use case?

Programming ligatures... there are many mistakes, because there is no method to identify the input language
for example, /= in C and Haskell are different.

then language system tags would make more sense

although I don’t think there’s a clear standardized use case for this (at least not in most programming languages)
if this is a user preference, then a few stylistic sets would make more sense
if a syntax highlighter can apply OpenType features, then those preferences can be used as well

@anthrotype Programmers are really crazy sometimes.
That's the reason I am not adding many ligatures to Iosevka.
An insane font, Monoid, has a ligature for mm. Seriously.

there’s some modifications of Source Sans Mono and Fira Sans Mono like that
I don’t get it personally

for ->, it is acceptable
but replacing [] to ? no. it is insane.

I guess everybody has to draw the line somewhere ;-)

If there is a set of language name tags, we can draw the line precisely.
