Hey David,

It's hard to say without knowing what calls you're making to the API, 
but yes, it's likely you're doing something not in the optimal way.  My 
first guess is that you are calling an external program repeated to get 
results.  SWORD has an initialization hit when it first is accessed-- 
finding all modules, loading locales, etc.  Once initialized, calls 
should be very fast, but if you are launching an external program over 
and over, the engine is initializing on each call.  Maybe not what 
you're doing, but without more info, that's my best shot.
Hope we can get you running fast.
