I'd be interested to see if you could duplicate the functionality of 
your current swish.cgi Perl script (snippet highlighting, sorting by 
property, etc) using the SWISHE module interface rather than forking the 
swish-e executable.  I've done a basic search.cgi using SWISHE, and was 
going to try to enhance it with some of these features from your 
swish.cgi, but I haven't had the time, yet.  Using the SWISHE module 
might solve some of the fork/exec problems you appear to be concerned 
with on Windows (I wouldn't know - I'm a Unix man :)
