Regarding this feature in the Dutch stemmer:

"Define undoubling the ending as removing the last
letter if the word ends kk, dd or tt."

A collegue of mine mentioned that it is wise to
undouble "nn", "mm", and "ff" as well for Dutch. Just
off the top of your head, does this seem resonable and
would you want to make this change? Otherwise, should
I prompt him for more info (e.g. example text)?
