Although I cringe slightly at using the u-less spellings of words
("enamor" just doesn't look right to me), from a computational point of
view it would probably be best to use the u-less versions. It is much
easier to remove the u when someone searches for a word with "ou" and
nothing is found (don't want to exclude flour), rather than trying to add
a 'u' to any word with an 'o' in it (loucoumoutioun and variants?).
