Subject Re: can some access modifiers in be changed/"opened up"

+1 on this. I was going to propose the same change by waited until the 
release went out.
While we are at this, can we also make the 
org.apache.lucene.analysis.PorterStemmer class public again? It is 
useful in case you want to utilize stemming in the same application 
where Lucene is being used. If the counterargument is that this confuses 
the purpose of the analysis package, perhaps PorterStemmer can be moved 
to util?
