It's doable. The search results the SWISH-E engine delivers gives you a
complete file path or URI (depending on how you use the ReplaceRules); if
you just set ReplaceRules to nothing at all, you get a complete file path.
You can then adapt whatever script you use to present the search results to
1) use the file path to get a timestamp, and 2) implement whatever "replace
rules" you need to turn the file path into a (relative) URI. You could
adapt the script generated by AutoSwish or just write your own.
