Do you want to use Perl?  If so, there's a script in the current dev
distribution that does all this.  You can see it at:

Otherwise, depending on how you generate results, look at -p and -x
switches for getting swish to tell you more interesting things.
StoreDescription is used to store content in the swish index.

Compile the current dev versions with zlib to compress content stored in
the index.  Read the online 2.1-dev documentation for more info.
