[sword-devel] 1 bug left for 1.5.8

For the indexing do you want to index all words (SimpleAnalyzer) or stop 
on common words (as defined by lucene) (i.e. StandardAnalyzer). For 
JSword, we settled on SimpleAnalyzer. Originally we did the 
StandardAnalyzer, but felt that we should control the stop words 
external to the index. It took the NASB index from 2M to 2.6M. It seemed 
to me that the index times were roughly the same, though Simple seemed a 
bit faster and less resource intensive than Standard.

Also, when building the index it is possible to throttle back the number 
of open files. This may improve performance on smaller machines.

Neither of these are bugs, but should be considered before release.
