Possible Fulltext Search Improvements

	Hey hey. So, I'm working on fulltext search a bit, and I was wondering
if anybody out there would like to help me out with some testing.

	Basically, I've made some modifications, but I don't yet know if
they're actually *better* than what we had before. So what I'd like is
if a few people could apply these patches to their test installation,
and then try doing some fulltext searches that they might actually do,
and tell me if they like the results better or worse than how old
Bugzilla does it:


	You have to apply both patches from both bugs, in the order that I
pasted them above. Note that you'll have to run checksetup.pl after you
apply the patches, and it will modify your DB, so you should only do
this in a testing environment, or a copy of your production environment.

	Just give me your subjective opinion--are the search results "better?"
If they are better, what's better about them? If they're worse, what's
worse about them?
