[obcsqmdo] Double U

If it is necessary to sacrifice one letter of the alphabet (perhaps to fit the remainder into a 5x5 square), W seems like a good choice, being easy to substitute two U or two V.  Those digraphs occur extremely rarely in English, so there is little worry for ambiguity or collision.  Sawy vacwm.

Merging I and J, commonly done, recalling Latin, is also not too bad.
