It might seem cleaner from a design perspective to put the Snoball 
analyzers in a second package, but I believe it would feel better to a 
new Lucene user to have them folded into the base Lucene jar, or at 
least distributed with the base Lucene download.  The analyzers will 
feel more "sanctioned" that way and I believe users would have more 
confidence using them.  Plus, it would be one less step to get started 
with Lucene.

It's like Ant and optional.jar.  We all want to use JUnit tasks.  Why 
should we all be forced to download and install optional.jar?  ;-)

My 2 cents,
