Yeah, hasn't anyone suggested this before?  It seems like the obvious 
solution.  A TSvector constructed with en_US is NOT the same as a vector 
constructed with fr_FR and it's silly to pretend that they are comparable.  
Sticking the config name at the beginning of the field would allow for the 
use of single-parameter functions, and default_config would only be used 
for SELECT queries.  Backup/restore issues should go away completely ...

EXCEPT this would introduce issues if the config is changed or deleted 
after being used.  However, I'd imagine that we have those anyway -- 
certainly we would at restore time.
