Add "an" to the English stop words

           Summary: Add "an" to the English stop words
           Product: Lucene
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Analysis
        AssignedTo: lucene-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ats37@hotmail.com


In org.apache.lucene.analysis.StopAnalyzer, the ENGLISH_STOP_WORDS array
contains "a" but not "an".  So searching for "a fund" will get the same hits as
"fund", but searching for "an investment" will get many more hits than "investment".

This is true in the latest revision of the file, but appears to have always been
the case.  I'm amazed nobody's pointed it out before now, our users had only
been testing for a few hours before they complained about it :-)
