Jose would need to answer, but I think that would take a design change 
in the way indexing works.

Do you find much difference in indexing speed using -e or not?

moseley@mardy:~$ swish-e -i usrdocs -c c
24735 files indexed.  184345060 total bytes.  20254324 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:00:57 CPU time: 00:00:48
(that used 74MB)

moseley@mardy:~$ swish-e -i usrdocs -c c -e
24735 files indexed.  184345060 total bytes.  20254324 total words.
Elapsed time: 00:01:07 CPU time: 00:00:56
