No bad rap, just one more dependency to get your script working.
Historically, the bindings break a lot, because APIs change and SWIG
isn't perfect (though it's mighty nice).

If a script depends on the bindings, that's one more requirement users
have to meet before they can use it. When the bindings bring a
significant benefit to the script, it's worth it; when they don't,
imho it's better to not use them then.
