I don't know much about Swig either, but I do know that it is capable of
defining and translating arguments (the first argument in this case), as
return values. If an error is returned by the real svn_wc_adm_open, then
Swig will throw a real Python exception. Otherwise, it actually returns the
value of the implicit first argument. The first "None" above should actually
be the second argument passed to the real svn_wc_adm_open, if I understand
Swig correctly.
