The bindings have been requiring 2.0 since before I joined the Subversion
project.

Our testsuite requires 2.0.

Our INSTALL file documents that we require 2.0 to build from a svn checkout.
(Although, we do try to keep the build generator working with 1.5.2, but
haven't formally documented that we guarantee this).

http://www.swig.org/compat.html claims that it supports all the way back to
1.5, and there is no mention of dropped support in the SWIG changes, so if
SWIG 1.3.24 has really has inadvertently bound itself to 2.2+, then I
imagine the SWIG developers would like to know.
