Re: Swish-e

I did not fork my project off of swish-e, I just build swishd on top of 
swish-e. Install swish-e from their site, then compile swishd from there.

As far as the file types, that is more of a question for the swish-e 
folks. I only attach to swish-e indexes, swishd does not do the actual 
indexing.
