    I wonder why you decided not to stick with Mod-DH, was it just curiosity to try out other stuff?

    Your layout makes decent choices I think, but of course is one of those that makes wholesale changes, which is not to everyone's taste.  I suppose you are going for a Dvorak-like approach of vowels all on the same side. Running it on my layout analyzer shows it to score comparably to default Colemak. Bigram analysis shows there are some moderately common same-finger pairs though:

    finger 6    AI    0.004830
    finger 2    NS    0.002731
    finger 1    PR    0.002656

    Thanks for the feedback and analysis. I still type on and off with Mod-DH because it's just the most comfortable layout I've used, but I have been switching around just to get a little taste of everything.
