Looks like it would require a complete rewrite of Christian's applet.
That's a nice bit of work, but it looks like it's tied directly to the
internal format of the index file, which changes often.

It would be best to base the code on the swish-e library interface as that
will allow the internals of swish-e to change without effecting the java
interface.  And the library API only changes once in a while.. ;)
