plugin for ElasticSearch 6 with help from the rest of the Search team

Not quite! We have to give *David* all the credit for updating and
rebuilding the Hebmorph plugin. I just ran a regression test to make sure
nothing too weird happened when using the new version. (It was only
0.002%-0.003%
weirder than expected, which is acceptable.)
