GAUL is unacceptable in OWL3 and CSW2015, but it has an acceptable
anagram in OWL3 and another acceptable anagram in CSW2015.

SWAMI has an anagram which is new in OWL3. CSW2015 is the same.

Chris K. suggested this quiz: find the OWL3 anagram of EASTWARD, and
CSW2015 is the same. The word is scary to a lot of folks.
