Variable Order Simplify

Q: Suppose I have variables that are related in the following way: and . Is there a straightforward way to get FullSimplify to consider these relationships, returning the simplest possible expression in terms of , , , , and , when performing simplification?

A: Adam Strzebonski (adams@wolfram.com) answers: VOISimplify, a function for variable-order independent simplification that uses FullSimplify and considers all permutations of the variables, does this.

Clearly, .

Here is a more complicated example.
