A user of the Mac port sent me a feature request to display ligatures
like above using Fira Code (https://github.com/tonsky/FiraCode).
Actually the mac-ct font backend driver, which is used in the NS port
as well as the Mac port, already supports ligatures.  So I tried to
activate the use of ligatures with the setting at the bottom of this
mail.  It mostly worked, but occasionally caused an error (which
actually triggers an infinite loop) at the following part in
Fcomposition_get_gstring (src/composite.c):

  1742        if (! STRING_MULTIBYTE (string))
  1743          error ("Attempt to shape unibyte text");

This should also be reproducible on other platforms using the
following example:

  (set-char-table-range composition-function-table ?-
                        '(["--" 0 font-shape-gstring]))

  (setq header-line-format "unibyte text containing \"--\"")

What was the idea behind disallowing text shaping for unibyte strings?
Is it possible to relax this restriction?
