Typodermic's Hedgrow

http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/typodermic/hedgerow/

has a nice glyphs where lower case letters sit in the space just above the upper case L's arm. Is there a name for that sort of thing? Are there other typefaces with this kind of glyph built in?

Ed Interlock!! And yes, this font deserves those two exclamation points.

From a typographic point of view, it's just another ligature -- an aesthetically pleasing variant of two or more characters, designed by the font designer him/herself.
