I guess that's saying that it happens during indexing not during searching.
 It doesn't change what gets indexed.  That is, you can't use ReplaceRules
to modify the path swish uses to find files to index.

A simple test configuration file, a sample document, and this command are
your friends:

   swish-e -f test.index -D -v 4 | grep -v ^0

Index one file and use that to see what's happening.
