It's a really bad day when those two merge for me, 'cos |v| is one of those letters that tend towards a horizontal line (others are |e| and |r|), whereas |u| tends to retain the upward thingies. The worst part is probably my strong tendency to write |h| and |k| the same. |r| becoming a softly rising line is perhaps odd, but doesn't cause much reading trouble.
