If the DocOrder is like a category, and you always want DocOrder 2 before
5, for example, then sort the results:
-s docorder swishrank desc
But then your rank scores will look werid.
Otherwise there's no current way to adjust the rank of a doc based on some
property value. Your best bet would be to post process the results and
bias the rank.
