#465: Stemmers which can produce multiple stems

 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  1.3.0
Component:  Library API  |     Version:

 The current API assumes exactly one stem per word, but some stemming
 algorithms can produce multiple stems (and possibly not producing any
 stems would be useful too...)

 For example:

 Hebrew stemmers in libhspell]
   * [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Metaphone Double Metaphone]
   * [http://snowball.tartarus.org/otherapps/schinke/intro.html Schinke
 Latin stemming algorithm]

 Likely to be require API adjustments to handle well, so marking as 1.3.0
 material for now.
