This is great.  So, Maybe Swish at the end of indexing should be really
noisy and suggest moving any automatic stopwords found into the
configuration file?

My guess is that there will be a lot of demand for the new version.  It's
faster indexing, seems faster in searching, and has phrase searching.  You
and SRE have done a lot for security, too, and just general improvement of
the code.  These are major improvements.
