    You might try a variant of SIL's Scheherazade. This font has a number of
    tunable features which can be selected via SIL TypeTuner. Visit, select Scheherazade, set the
    "Sukun" feature to "Open Left", and then click on "Get tuned font" to
    download a Scheherazade variant with the alternate sukun.

    I'll be interested to know if this does what you want.
