I'm using Colemak DH with the Angle mod on an ANSI keyboard so my bottom left row is XCDVZ. I find the Z really uncomfortable and hard to reach. Also in my analyses of corpora relevant to me , the zZ seems to occur more frequently than the /? key so I'm trying out swapping these. This does introduce the ZO and OZ same-finger bigrams (e.g. ozone) but how big a problem is that given how infrequent Z is?
I also find that Z is used quite a lot in vim and tmux usage. Of course so is / given that it initiates searches and filepaths but there it tends to occur on its own and not part of a key combo like Z.
Perhaps I'm biased because I come from Dvorak and this swap restores Z to its Dvorak postition. What are your thoughts?

Here zZ occurrs 1205 times and /? only 755 times.
