I'm actually hoping to search the title and description fields of my
products table.  Would Swish work well for that or is it mainly
designed to crawl and index HTML pages?

Besides fuzzy searching, I'm eager to get something to match the
search "big widgets" to the description "big blue widgets".  I'm
currently using op=rm to search and it doesn't seem to make that
