Excellent questions, hopefully someone will have more info on this. 
AutoSWISH 1.1 had some major security problems among a few minor things.

I think most of us (based on past conversations) are simply creating our
own config files by hand.

Are you going to allow many different (dozens, hundreds, etc) people to
create their own custom search indices?  AutoSWISH would be useful for
that.  AutoSWISH really isn't that much better than writing the config
by hand.  But, it does allow you to 'forget' which directives do which
tasks in the config file.

Or, are a few people going setup a group of system-wide search indices? 
In this case it might be easier to create a few config files by hand,
write a simple shell script, and schedule that script to run the indexer
daily or weekly.
