In this specific case it is possible to introduce the new stemmers via 
one method and leave the old stemmers accessable using old methods.

But that is not a very pretty solution either. Almost the same thing as 
creating a new module called snowball2.

One solution is to add a complete new i18 API with abstract support for 
per language stemmer, synonyms, diacritization and what not. I have many 
times thought it would be nice to have that.
