mysql and swishe

I'm hoping for some feedback from swish-e users out there who are also 
using mysql.

I know that some folks use swish-e to index mysql tables for searching. 
Is there a reason you do that instead of just querying the database 
directly? Is there a big performance difference?

I am just starting to research a significant mysql project and haven't 
used it before. I've toyed off and on with using swish-e as the backend 
instead of mysql, but that seems to be advantageous only for read-only 
searching, not doing any kind interaction that would require saving data.

Horror/success stories welcome.
