PATCH: match-word-context

Quite a while ago I proposed a patch to match-words-by-style that would
allow more control of the context for styles used by the word functions.
I've decided I like it after all, but I've implemented it in a slightly
more self-contained fashion.  See the documentation.

I've also removed the workaround in match-words-by-style for a bug that
was fixed some time ago.
