Interface to Snowball implementation of Porter's word stemming algorithm..

An R interface to the C code that implements Porter's word stemming algorithm for collapsing words to a common root to aid comparison of texts. There is code to for different languages (i.e. danish, dutch, english, finnish, french, german, norwegian, portuguese, russian, spanish, swedish). However, these may not be applicable if the words require UTF encoding. This is extensible by allowing different routines to be specified to create the C routines used in the stemming, permitting debugging, profiling, pool management, caching, etc.
