karl, what is the essential difference between the existing and
LUCENE-1515 stemmer?

As this is contrib/snowball you should know that we plan to move
snowball into contib/analyzers to remove some code duplication. Maybe
we can incorporate your stemmer with that refactoring. I don't know if
there is already an issue (can find it though - robert any idea?) but
we will move forward on that as soon as LUCENE-2034 is committed.
