No, SWAT is just fine, once you understand what you'll lose by using it, 
which is mainly your comments.  There were a couple of bugs a few 
versions ago that would mess with your quotes but they've been fixed now.

In my setup, I use it on a day to day basis when I want to add some 
strange option or look at what the available options are.  It's also 
fairly useful for a quick documentation lookup:  see an odd option, 
click help, get dropped to the man page. 

Personally I would appreciate a well designed discussion about why 
certain things suck and how they can be rebuilt as opposed to FUD 
spamming.  One person's overly critical opinion has clearly scared at 
least one person here.
