Wacky zeroing plums. I considered anagramming, but decided against it.

I don't *think* this challenge is that hard. I have 18.

m and n make different chars if you reverse the digraph order.

Kind of the opposite of "Remove Accent off the Letter". Of course, the actual
opposite would be R/S/C and enter the letters in insert mode. And of course
there's no real-world reason to add accents this way. There's potential for
some nasty challenges using this as a hidden pattern that make hidden rot-13
seem tame.

Here's proof you can submit whatever you want in the diff file. Did you read
