Swish-e has no concept of users, rights or authorization. It's just an index. You'd have
to come up with your own system. You can do that by either (1) selecting which indexes to
search (as you propose above), or (2) selecting which documents to return, either by
filtering at search time using a MetaName (append "AND user=1234" to all queries) or at
display time using a PropertyName (next $result if $result->user !~ m/\b1234\b/).
