I assumed that things like stopwords would be configured through the 
configuration file - I had not mentally "seen" it as an indexing only 
config file.  This is related to the stopwords problem I was having - 
since I was getting results from searching for a stopword, I guessed 
that perhaps I needed to point swish-search at the config file listing 
the stopwords.

If all the information is encoded in the index then obviously I don't 
need to have the config file, and the behaviour I reported makes sense.

I found it so, that's true.  An explicit "you don't need a config file 
for searching" in the SWISH-SEARCH page would make it clearer, IMHO.
