Right, you do not want to pass any data that will be passed onto the shell
or used to open a file. You can do ?config=1 and then use that "1" to map
to a specific config file.
I don't see why you couldn't test QUERY_STRING and set the config file
location based on that, though. You would have to show the changes you
made so I can see what you are attempting.
Can you use mod_perl? If so then you can use the same swish.cgi code in
the server but use a PerlSetVar for different configs. You just use
different PerlSetVar directives within each <Location> directive.
Different URLs look like they are running different scripts, but it's
really the same code but with different configs.
If you use mod_perl you will have some very fast searches.
