The swish API if for searching an existing index.  Not creating an
index where you define a property.

In perl you do:

    $prop = $result->Property('category');

Oh, so you want it index-wide?  So every call to 

    $result->Property('category')

returns "books"?

No, there's nothing to do that.  There's a few index headers that you
can set (IndexAdmin, IndexName, IndexDescription, IndexPointer),
though.

Otherwise, you would need to set the value on every input file.
