Towards a static solution to Wordle

A static solution to Wordle would be a sequence of five guess words which would distinguish all the answer words. I've run C-based parallel nearly-brute force (with some time-saving heuristics) code to try to see if there is a static solution. No luck so far. The closest I have is flitt dawds vughy kerel combo paean, which leaves two pairs undistinguished (spine/snipe and gauge/gauze). There may be a full solution, but I don't have it. (Note: I am working with the original answer list, not the modified New York Times one.)
