Great! If we are moving to SWIG 1.3.24, there is no need to discuss
the problems with SWIG 1.3.21 in the INSTALL file. Would you be happy
with my patch if I instead deleted the information on older versions
of SWIG? I can also patch the swig.m4 file to disallow SWIG 1.3.19
through 1.3.21, if you think this is a good idea.

On the python-bindings-improvements branch, I had to copy and paste a
large section of code from SWIG in order to support new SWIG features
on old SWIG versions, such as 1.3.19. If we forced users to upgrade to
SWIG 1.3.24, this code would not be necessary.
