To index the document path you use:

Too bad they didn't think about it and use something that sorted more
naturally like yyyymmdd.

Sounds more like you need a database. Store meta data about each PDF in a
database and you can easily make those kind of selects.
If you want to do the kind of full-text searching that swish does and select
by a date range then you can use the swish-e "limit" feature (see -L in the
SWISH-RUN manual page) to limit your searches by date.
You can probably use the ExtractPath feature with a regular expression to
get your date into a more sensible order in a property. ExtrctPath is
described in the SWISH-CONFIG manual page.
