Otis Gospodnetic updated LUCENE-1417:
-------------------------------------

    Priority: Minor  (was: Major)

I agree with Grant.  I like that we not have pluggable distance metric, for example.

> Spelling suggestions are currently ordered first by a string edit distance measure, then
by popularity/frequency.  This limits the ability of popularity/frequency to affect suggestions.
 I think it would be better for the distance measure to accept popularity/frequency as an
argument and provide a distance/score that incorporates any popularity/frequency considerations.
 I.e. change StringDistance.getDistance to accept an additional argument: frequency of the
potential suggestion.
> The new SuggestWord.compareTo function would only order by score.  We could achieve the
existing behavior by adding a small inverse frequency value to the distances.
