I expect the set of documents that contain a word ("directories") and
the set of documents containing its true stem ("directory") to overlap
widely. I also expect the set of documents that contain a word ("kms")
and an incorrect stem ("km") to scarcely overlap. Do the manual pages
meet these expections? If so, then maybe you can decide whether or not
to keep a stem by looking at the document-set overlap?
