AutoSWISH was designed to allow you to edit/create SWISH indices from
the web. For example, you have a bunch of users and you want them to be
able to index their web directory without having to manually edit SWISH
config files. It was just a web interface to the filesystem indexer.
The HTTP (Spider) indexer didn't exist then. AutoSWISH has not been
maintained since around SWISH-E/1.1, as far as I know. It was pulled
because of security concerns. I've seen occasional mention of people
wanting to rewrite or update it. But, I've not seen any mention of
