If you're indexing many documents which contain multiple languages then it's 
probably just better to use a SimpleAnalyser, rather than one that does any 
language specific stemming or removal of stoplist words.

If there are documents where one language is clearly more dominant than the 
other, then it would probably be ok to use an Analyzer for that language and 
hope it doesn't effect the indexing of the other language too much. However, 
it's clear that you can't really accomodate multi-language documents. It 
would be much easier to ensure all docs were in a single language before
