Re: swish-e in daemon form

The swish-e home page mentions this:

'swished', a mod_perl-based concurrent and persistent swish-e server 
written by Josh and to be open sourced around the time of conference. 
Such a server has long been on the SWISH-E "to do" list.

under the lead blurb about Josh Rabinowitz. I haven't heard whether Josh 
has released swished or not.
