No, not currently. And I doubt it could easily be edited. Reindexing
is usually best.

If you wanted to "remove" a file, say "test.html" from the index you
might be able to create a new "test.html" that contained a dummy word
(I think swish-e won't index empty files) and then merge that index with
your initial index. That file will still be in the index, and it will
get returned no "not" searches.
I have not looked at the merge code in quite a while. But I suppose you
could pass in a list of file names and have swish-e write out a new
index with those files skipped. merge.c is the place to look.
