I forgot. With perl script, dump can be transformed to readable form.
I see forms of port TSearch to integrated full text:
1. clean and prefered .. dump and application are modified
2. dump is modified, application works via some api
3. full wrapper with known issues
4. special smart mode where TSearch2 API functions are dynamicly
converted to fulltext api
get function name
if it some from tsearch2 api transform it or forgot it
else create function
but perl script do it well and outside

It was my original goal. But there is lot of issues.
I found different problem, that have to be solved if wrapper have to
be dump compatible.
there is about five functions with same name, and I have problem with
wrapping, because I create recursive calling. I am not able select
integrated functions. That was reason for use prefix tsa.
