That's not really stemming.  Take a look at Lingua::Stem -- it'd be
really quite neat if you could incorporate that.  I've not used the
module directly, only through DBIx::FullTextSearch, but it seems to do
a decent job.

The other aspect is that for a really user-friendly search people
should be able to just type in whatever comes into their heads and the
search engine should do all the clever munging, but I think we probably
need a bigger dataset and some completely novice users to get that right.
