Which makes me wonder -- does Yoorup really need a one cent AND a two
cent coin?  They had a once-in-a-century chance to reboot their
monetary system, and they came up with eight coin denominations (no
cash register has eight compartments) include a one cent and a two
cent, at least one of which, or maybe both, are unneeded.

I've always liked this idea, in fact I wondered why it wasn't done
this way the first time I saw it.  Doug, what do you think of storing
the analyzer with the index, and letting things like the query parser
default to using the stored analyzer, so that people will be less
likely to shoot their feet by using the wrong analyzer?
