Legacy stuff in a way.  In the beginning there was only toInternal()
and toExternal().  I added indexedToReadable(), storedToReadable(),
storedToIndexed() later for more completeness.  I think I didn't add a
readableToIndexed() since that was really what toInternal() was.

Really, the stored field could be a normal readable value - no reason
it has to match the indexed value.
I made them the same as an optimization to bypass the analyzer since
there was no way to just give the token directly to the IndexWriter
(worth it?  I don't know...)
