Any thoughts on the "difference" method?

Thank you for your interest in [codec].

Soundex is, well, Soundex, a method to find word with similar phonemes.

Refined Sounder, OTOH, is more geared towards spellchecking.

For example:

new Soundex().encode("testing") returns "T235"
new RefinedSoundex().encode("testing") returns "T6036084"
