For ligature support, I do need something like this for Commit Mono:

      `([" [,-.:;A-Z_a-z><=!&|+-?/\\]+" 0 font-shape-gstring]))
Beware: composition-function-table is global, so the above will ligate
characters on the mode line as well, which might not be what you want.
Is there any way to make it local? If I make composition-function-table buffer-local and set the buffer-local variable, would it work? The use-case I'm thinking about is using Commit Mono for Info buffers and help buffers, which have large bodies of monospaced text. The improved readability would help a lot there.
