It's unfortunate that your approach was "attacked" so much. I don't think
there was much call for it. Note that we have both SWIG-based and
manually-written Java bindings in the code today -- our bindings aren't
*all* swig. Under bindings/, we have swig/ and java/. I don't see any
reason why we couldn't also have a bindings/pyrex/.

That said: putting them into the standard distribution is an open
question. Barry's pysvn wasn't included because people didn't really agree
with the approach. I'd suggest that you put together the pyrex-based
bindings and propose them as an alternative set of bindings to live at
bindings/pyrex/. The discussion can then be very concrete about the merits
of putting them in the build, rather than abstract comments about the form
of implementation.
