Then just type in (or copy and paste) your long s directly: ſ
We live in Unicode land nowadays, you know. ;-)

Since yfrak has no automatic replacement either, it’s surely not more complicated.
(Might be interesting to find a mechanism, like for hyphenation or ligatures, that at least does it right most of the time.)

And I’m pretty sure you don’t change umlaut variants all the time, so one setup in your environment or preamble is also no hassle.
A setup or switch is even better (more flexible) than yfraks ugly hardcoded input.
