Load the SWISH server for local usage

This module loads the SWISH server for default local usage, i.e., mostly for developing SWISH. The file daemon.pl can be used as a start to run it as a server process.

This file is normally used from run.pl, which is started like this from the shell to start the SWISH server accessible on http://localhost:3020/
