I think I understand where your coming from. But if I'm correct in 
understanding then you dont need swish to do anything really (I think 
this is where Bill Moseley was coming from).

Basically you can setup a table structure in whatever language your 
using to display your results, and do a lookup on that table based on 
the filename..... E.g., using PHP....

	$lookup["S2172_TABLE.pdf"] = "Module 72 Tables";
	$lookup["another_filename_here.pdf"] = "Show This Title Instead";


Now instead of displaying the filename in your results you can simply 
use the table instead.....

	// if there is no match in the table, use the filename instead
	$display_title = $filename;
	if (isset($lookup[$filename]))
		$display_title = $lookup[$filename];

	print $display_title;

If you get my drift (none of this code is tested, but it should give you 
an idea perhaps?)

Hope it helps.
