Not slow at all. Check out http://www.wested.org/werc/lessons.html -
these are four swish++ indexes, each indexes about 1000 documents. The
Perl script pulls-out the first 300 non-html characters from
each document that matches the query, and uses that as the desription.
This happens interactively for each search result.
The software all resides on an old Sparc-10 with 48MB RAM (about as fast
as a 486-66). Not too shabby for a Perl script...
