Are connections created for every request, or does the client (or
manager) maintain persistent connection with swishd?

Is any caching done on the swishd -- so if you ask for the same query
you can avoid searching the index again?  Might be helpful for viewing
"next" and "previous" pages.

Is swishd a single process?  That is, does it only process one request
at a time?  Or does it fork to process requests?

Have you looked at SWISHED at ?  It uses
mod_perl for the server side.

Can you make it available some place?  Do you have any example code?
