Well, the only thing I can find in Ubuntu is liblingua-stopwords-perl, a
Perl package. However, the list of stopwords isn't large (English ones
from that Perl package at and the other languages are there too), and I suspect that the list of ordinary search stopwords wouldn't necessarily apply to music searching anyway ("You're", for example, is a common English search stopword, but you'd probably want to include it in a music search), so I think it'd be reasonable to build and include a Rhythmbox-specific stopword list in Rhythmbox rather than depending on something provided in distros. (The list could obviously be inspired by existing stopword lists in packages or on the web, though.)
