Minor nit, but swishspider itself only produces output for some errors.
The output you are seeing is from swish-e proper.

The number in parenthesis after the URL is how deep the URL is from the
starting point.  0 is for URLs listed in the configuration file.  1 is for
URLs found in level 0 URLs.  2 is for URLs found in level 1 URLs...
