Feature requests

Hello Bill;

I have two small feature requests too. 

First, it would be good for applications that depend
on SWISH-E if there was a way to find out the version
of (or equivalent) that's used by
SWISH::API. It could be a simple method called
SWISH::API::swishversion() that would return a string
like "2.4.3".  I guess if this isn't in the C API then
this is a request to put a similar function there too.

Secondly and on a related note, I notice that  
  % swish-e -f pagec.index -H 9
returns the version of swish-e that built the index:
  # SWISH format: 2.4.2
but this data doesn't seem to be available through the

If these features could be added, I think that
end-user applications could be made more stable and
informative.  I can supply patches if desired. Thanks
for your consideration.
