    I am sorry to always contradict you but, in Italian, there always is an
    hyphenation point between two identical consonant letters. Nevertheless,
    Italian typography traditionally requires the "ff", "ffi" and "ffl"

    BTW, this leads me to a horrible thought: would a shy hyphen between the two
    f's prevent the formation of the "ff" ligature? In this is the case, fonts
    might also need to have <f>+<shy>+<f>, <f>+<shy>+<f><i>, and
    <f>+<shy>+<f><l> into their ligature tables.
