I would tend to agree. Especially since SWISH++ is so much faster. As
was mentioned, SWISH++ has the advantage of using mmap calls so it
doesn't use much memory. Paging is really slow. Hopefully some day
this problem with SWISH-E will be addressed by someone ambitious.
If I get some time I may try SWISH-E 2.0, 1.3, and SWISH++ on a subset
of my Linux /usr/doc just to see how they compare on my system. It will
also give me the chance to play with the memory profiler ;-)
