I would like to see that our release process mandate that we won't cut
tarball from branch until 24-48h hours after the last merge.

This way someone else has a fighting chance to test branch, and our
smoke testers has time to kick in.

At the moment, svntester runs unit tests for swig-pl and javahl, and
verify that swig-py compiles and installs.

BR, Jani
