swish-cgi.pl for swish 2

I have a system for indexing and searching our thesis-abstracts
on the web. It is currently using a slightly modified version of 
swish-cgi.pl (by John Millard). Now I'm contemplating the move 
to swish 2 and I wonder:
 - how much work that will be, 
 - has someone already done that
 -Should I rather switch to some other script/library
 -Will using the new version correct the problems of case-
sensitive national characters (ascii >127)

  (and whether I will be able to index words containing a dash?  
Search for "swish-cgi.pl" fails even at
 http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/SWISH-E/Discussion/archive.html)

The swish 1.3 based search is at
