Agreed.  Are the list of lexemes parser-specific?

Uh, it was in the SGML.  I have removed it.

Uh, my question is why are you allowing specification as an integer/oid
when the name works just fine.  I don't see the value in allowing
numbers here.

But I don't see why you would want to set two of those values --- they
seem mutually exclusive, e.g.

        1 divides the rank by the 1 + logarithm of the document length
        2 divides the rank by the length itself

I assume you do either one, not both.

Same issue as above --- why allow a number here when the name works just
fine.  We don't allow tables to be specified by number, so why

Well, then we have to fix the API.  Telling users to use a different
operator based on what index is defined is just bad style.

OK, I changed it to be clearer.

Again, no need for oid.
