It is kind of strange that YIVO decided to use both pe-dagesh and pe-rafe,
but never plain pe ("jam yesterday and jam tomorrow", etc.) except in
Hebrew borrowings. I guess they were dealing with a situation where
some people had used plain pe for /p/ and others for /f/ and there was
no clear majority preference.
