I'm not sure it would be the best way to accomplish this, but you 
could incorporate something into the CGI interface (assuming you are 
searching from a Web page) which combined "not NO-SWISH-E" with 
every search issued.

In other words, don't attempt to exclude those documents in the actual
index, but weed them out at the time you are searching/retrieving... 
This would be fairly simple to do.
