It seems possible to write your own functions to support various
possibilities with text search.

One of the more common thoughts is to have a list of words that you
would like to include, i.e. the opposite of a stop word list.

There are clear indications that indexing too many words is a problem
for both GIN and GIST. If people already know what they'll be looking
for and what they will never be looking for, it seems easier to supply
that list up front, rather than hide it behind lots of hand-crafted

Can we include that functionality now?

This could be realized very easyly using dict_strict, which returns
only known words, and mapping contains only this dictionary. So,
feel free to write it and submit.

So there isn't one yet, but you think it will be easy to write and that
we should call it dict_strict?

we have dict_synonym already and if your list is not big you'll be happy.
