metaphone word indexing/searching

  First off I'd like to say what a nice piece of software swish-e is.
Now... I've attached a replacement src/soundex.c that uses the
metaphone algorithm, which gives substantially better results than
the soundex method. If you'd like to try it, just replace the
src/soundex.c file with the one attached. If anyone out there tries
this, please let me know what your thoughts about it are. I've
been running this on a linux box for about a week now w/o anything
blowing up.
