not exactly true. The word position data is stored in the index, but it is not currently
available as a swishproperty for output in search results, so you can not display or sort
by it.

You could work around that by dumping the index word position data to a database of some
kind and then pull from that db to display the word position. See the -T option for
swish-e for dumping index information.
