I'm not so optimiztic, certainly not with the amount of data
you're groing to be throwing at SWISH-E's which gets slower and
slower as it runs.
Try extending SWISH++. You would need to write an aditional
function to grab a file from the web to local disk and then
index it normally. You'd also have to modify the code to keep
track of files and make it keep track of URLs instead and to
avoid circular links.
The breadth-first strategy of SWISH++ rather than the depth-
first one of SWISH-E is certainly better suited to web
The source code for SWISH++ is also much more readable.
