I finally remembered the problem with this.  Consider the phrase query 
"Lord of the Rings".  What does QueryParser do with this if "of" and 
"the" are stop words?  I think it turns it into "Lord Rings".  But with 
this patch, that phrase query will no longer match text containing the 
text "Lord of the Rings".  Or have I missed something?

So either this patch should be pulled, or we need to add 
position-increment-like support to PhraseQuery.  I plan to do the latter 
in the next few months (for a contract I'm working on) so perhaps we 
should just pull this patch until PhraseQuery is updated, at which time 
we can consider updating QueryParser to take advantage of this feature.
