because it is an experimental feature, I suggest you experiment and let 
us know. :)

you can redefine the range here:

swish.h:#define RANK_BIAS_RANGE 10

set it to something larger than 10 and recompile swish-e. Then let us 
know if a higher range is an effective tool.

the most recent CVS daily build has some other ranking improvements, so 
you might experiment with that version for this test, to see if those 
changes help with your biasing need.
