Sorting by swishlastmodified...

Hi folks,

Using '... -s swishlastmodified desc' _almost_ works perfectly.  The only 
problem I've uncovered is that, if you've created your index via spidering, 
there's no swishlastmodified stored, I guess because the files aren't local 
and stat'able, and so all dates for spidered content come back as 31 Dec. 
1969!  But don't nicely behaved web servers pass a Last Modified HTTP 
header to clients?  If so, might we be able to use that to set 
swishlastmodified when creating a spider-generated index?

One other small enhancement request in this area would be for -x 
<swishlastmodified fmt="..."> to support a fmt of just giving straight 
seconds since the epoch back.  Strangely enough strftime doesn't seem to 
offer that.
