Here's a possible wish list item that I don't yet see on the list of
future enhancements: Collation (ordering) of meta tags so one could
limit a search by
metaname < quantity
in addition to string comparison (metaname = word)
For example, dates stored as metatags (yyyymmdd):
swish-e -w "date < 17760704"
Another is a collection I have where individual documents have access
attributes (say ordered 0,1,2,...), where higher means more access.
I spider into a common index, with each @url entry starting at a
page that lists all documents (to which swishe has access),
recording the access level in the access metatag. Although access to
the document itself is separately restricted by an application, I
want to avoid information leakage in the description property, so:
swish-e -w "access = (0 or 1 or 2)" for someone with access level 2
But with a collation order, I could also use swish-e -w "access <
Admittedly this is much less compelling than date sequences.
