That is a small part of the problem.

As I mentioned earlier, the various interpreters will need to be embedded
into the (server side) of Subversion. SWIG only handles calling from a
script back into the library. It does not handle embedding at all. It also
does not handle passing data from the hosting app/lib into the interpreter.
