I actually think this is a good example. So lets assume we'd write a tool to
fully quote binary expressions, e.g. that turns
if (a * b + c * d == 10) ...
if (((a * b) + (c * d)) == 10) ...
So, here, we would be inserting two "(" and two ")" at the same locations. And,
as you correctly mention, the order doesn't matter because we are inserting the
same string twice. I think this is actually good behavior.
Deduplication is an interesting concern, but I think we probably want to handle
that at a different layer. E.g. in the use case above, deduplicating would be
quite fatal :).
