yeah, that's what I thought. I was wondering if that kind of feature 
would be useful as part of the API itself (like the stat[0,1] could be 
remembered in the object somehow and then compared internally at every 
Search() or something, throwing an exception or SwishError ?).

Is that a logical thing to try and work into the API errorchecking code?

Otherwise, I'll just take your approach and do it in my calling scripts.
