Convert regular pandoc footnotes to in-line notes - 51 entries

Pandoc extends markdown by allowing footnotes, which are usually represented with a footnote identifier followed later in the document by the footnote itself. But Pandoc also allows inline footnotes without identifiers. How many strokes does it take to convert regular footnotes to inline notes? (NB: I've had trouble figuring out whether text-width makes a difference to Vimgolf in comparing the input and output file. I finally tested this locally using the Vimgolf vimrc and did a "gq" on the entire buffer as the last step. Apologies if I'm making a newbie mistake. First time submitter.)
