Hi Steve,

Not to fussed about query-time performance; certainly no-one has 
complained so far. It's more the sheer number of junk pages we get 
searching on phrases that contain stop words - it can lead to hundreds 
of thousands of results, and the pedants among our userbase insist on 
paging through the lot :-|

I'd much rather contain the stop words using a *gram based approach and 
offer a less populous but more accurate resultset.

you have outlined: CommonGramsFilter<>
 and CommonGramsQueryFilter<>.
We use lucene directly, but I'll take a look - Thanks.
