If swish indexes a document that contains "I saw a dog bite a cat", then
each word is placed in the index separately.  Feeding swish the string
dog%20bite would fail to find that document if swish was looking for the
entire string including the percent sign twenty.  Feeding swish "dog bite"
with the %20 decoded into a space, would find the document, but would also
find any other document with both bite and dog in it.
