 Web. This package is an extraction of the stemming code included in the Whoosh
 search engine.
+Note that these are *pure Python* implementations. Python wrappers for, e.g.
+the Snoball stemmers and the C implementation of the Porter stemmer are
+available on PyPI and will be faster if using compiled code is an option for
 Stemming algorithms attempt to automatically remove suffixes (and in some
 cases prefixes) in order to find the "root word" or stem of a given word. This
 is useful in various natural language processing scenarios, such as search.
 The ``stemming`` package contains modules for each algorithm (``lovins``,
 ``paicehusk``, ``porter``, and ``porter2``). Each module contains a ``stem()``
->> from stemming.porter2 import stem
->> stem("factionally")
+    >> from stemming.porter2 import stem
+    >> stem("factionally")
+    faction
 (The Paice-Husk algorithm allows custom stemming rule sets, so the
 ``paicehusk`` module also includes a ``PaiceHuskStemmer`` class you can
