Re: [SWISH-E:9] display results alphabetically?

Right now the SWISH-E only returns the title in decreasing order 
according to the relevance rank. 

>From the docs:
The relevance rank. This number is generated with each
result and is the program's "best guess" as to how relevant it thinks the
file is to your query. This rank number, which can range from 1 to 1000,
depends on a number of factors, such as how many times your search word
appears in the file, how many words are in the file, and if the word
appears in a title or header tag (if it's an HTML file), among other

Any sorting of different kind, i.e. alphabetical, needs to be done by 
manipulating the SWISH-E output though another program.
