I suspect the docs explain that, but -S prog input method can read
either from a pipe or from stderr. So, swish has no idea what is
generating the data. Perl just happens to be a tool well suited for
this kind of task.

The Perl module included in the swish distribution, SWISH::API, does
basically the same thing -- it takes the C procedural interface and
provides an object interface to the library in Perl. So I suspect you
could do that with like your example above.
