I need proximity. Some time I have to rank my article and make a chart for

I still don't understand about tsearch2 configuration, so until now I just
use default configuration. I will try your suggestion. But how can I get the
en_ispell? Does my system will know if I use: ....,'{en_ispell,en_stem}';

(Keywords='blabla') isn't related to tsearch2, I just got an idea from
tsearch2 and try different approach. But I stuck on the query result speed.
Very slow to get result on the first query. 
And how to see postgresql stats and look on cache hit ratio? I still don't
know how to get it.

What the use of clustered_foo table? And how to use it?
I think it will not distinct duplicate rows. And the clustered_foo table
still not have an index, so if query to this table, I think the query will
be very slow to get a result.
