before incremental indexing (which is a great feature that i have been 
waiting for to be stable), there were just 2 files.  so i could do my 
logical grouping of indexing and dump all the files into a folder.

then when its time to do swish, could just use a wildcard to search all 
of the files.

if each folder was separate, like with lucene, then i guess i would have 
to use bash script to reiterate through folders.

my vote is not impose a folder structure and let the implementation 
handle it.    some would dump all into one folder (like me).  others 
might create folders and have a way of managing that.

excellent work with swish. i have evaluated many indexing systems (as 
well as have used swish for eons) and swish has been the easiest to use, 
keep up the great work.
