Sorry, I needed to go back and look at how jsFind works. You are right; in theory, if you
could dump your Swish-e index as XML you could use jsFind with it.
The Swish-e developers discussed adding the XML dump feature to Swish-e. My mail archive
from 11/21/2004 suggests that David Norris was considering a patch to dump.c that would
add the -T index_xml feature. No idea if he got around to that.

if Dave can't dig out the code he had, you could likely write something to parse the
output of swish-e -T index_all to create the XML you need.
