[swish-e] config file

Hello,

I believe I have managed to get Swish-e 2.4 installed *cheering*, and
apparently the spider by default? I didn't get any serious looking errors
messages.

I have made a config file that I think I will need, but I would guess that I
have some .. "oops" lines in it.

The README talks about the config file as if it may not be needed

"Note: In many cases you may not need a configurataion file at all when
indexing
with swish.  The configuration defaults should get you started. "

That's a bit mysterious to the technically challenged like me.

So:

1 - If I need a config file, is the one I have prepared acceptable?

2 - What should I name my config file "?????.config"

3 - In which directory should I load that file?

4 - Do I need to change anything in the "defaults" to tell it I have
.
