Both SubWiki and ViewCVS are targeted at 1.5.2 or later, and that implies
the SWIG bindings "need" to work against 1.5.2.

Of course, if SVN does something to force the bindings up to later versions
of Python, then those apps will just drop their 1.5.2 usage, but so far...
the bindings are not specific to any Python release.

SVN and the svn-swig-based apps could certainly receive some benefit from
better checks and whatnot, but there ya go.
