[Snowball-discuss] -IZE versus -ISE

I was wondering if anyone had overcome (or tried to!) the -IZE/-ISE problem: where 'categorize' and 'categorise' are both valid spellings of the same word. I noticed that the algorithm only takes into account the -IZE version.

I am aware the english language is a complex beastie and you would have to differentiate 'prize' from 'prise', but I thought someone might have had some success in this area...?
