I would very much prefer such a thing. I've started down the road
myself several times, but kept getting hung up on our build system.
I'd like it very much if 'make swig-py' would create ready-to-install
/ ready-to-test modules linked against the C libraries still in the
build tree. Upon that foundation could 'make swig-py-check' be built.
