Yes, of course, and me too, through your code :)

But that does not imply that one can actually use them to code say an
equivalent of "svn add --no-auto-props somefile.py"... After few hours
I gave up on swig, while it took *half* an hour to understand how to
do the same for pysvn and contribute it back.

That's the top priority for bindings, imho: assuming one master at
least one of the two involved domains and is able to read/understand
code/documentation of the other, he should definitively be in position
of contribute to them. This is not currently so, as SWIG push in a
third domain, almost as tricky and complicated as the sum of the other
two. Pyrex promises just that, and even the C++ layer used by pysvn is

I concede that :) Sorry Ben for my possibly unweighted words. And
