             Summary: Have a clear distinction between Edit Distance, String 
Similarity, Score, Metric, etc

>From LANG-1269.

A user reported a nomenclature issue in [lang], which occurs in [text] as well.

Currently we have an interface called EditDistance, with the following 

* CosineDistance
* HammingDistance
* JaroWrinklerDistance
* and LevenshteinDistance

JaroWrinkler is actually a similarity score, and not a distance. We have other 
classes in the oact.similarity package too.

* CosineSimilarity
* FuzzyScore

We need to provide users a clear distinction on what we call an edit distance, 
similarity or score.
