Actually, this can be simplified to:

%2e op[e3] %2o op[o0] /e op[e3] /o op[o0]

which is also more similar to the last line of the four-line and
five-line versions:

Basically, we have the single line for all 16 combinations, and we may
split it into 4*4 = 16 or 2+1+4+4+4 = 15 if we need to treat some of the
combinations specially (such as exclude the no-op one).
