En réponse à Tristan McLeay :

Using active characters it's not unfeasible, but extremely difficult to do
unless you're a TeX guru. Just check the source of the Babel package to
understand what I mean (if your LaTeX distribution is well done, there
should be a babel.dvi - or Babel.dvi - file somewhere in it containing the
source with comments).
As for ligatures, they are defined only at the level of the font source, so
unless you create a special font containing unitary w+tilde and W+tilde
characters, and define for that font a ligtable assigning the m+h and M+h
sequences to those two characters, it's just impossible to do. And creating
a special font for just one character is a bit overkill ;))) .
In other words, going the macro way is the best and simplest way to do
things, if you're not already happy with the results of \~w and \~W of
course :) .
You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
