 This is purely architecture. It's not a candidate for a feature plugin.

 This patch needs a refresh. On two fronts:
  * The way it integrates into WP_Query is quite messy. We should try to
 keep this constrained to its own method (or multiple methods).
  * We should consider dropping stopword support. Yes, it can cause the
 query to grow more complicated, but it's also in no way truly localizable.
 This is way too much of a burden on translators, and even in English, it's
 fraught with issues. It would be *far* easier to implement such a major
 change if we avoided stopwords entirely for now.

 Also, this could strongly benefit from some basic unit tests.
