That's why I gave the "t-online" example: it makes the search result look 
incorrect but hardly helps reduce index size. "t" and "s" were probably 
added so "don't" doesn't get indexed as "don", "t", but this doesn't 
happen anyway as the StandardTokenizer keeps "don't" as a single token. 
"'s" is cut off in StandardFilter.

In general, this is only a default list and people will need to adapt it 
anyway. So we should only add the words which are probably stopwords for 
most users.
