Thanks for your help, John! I've updated the
python-bindings-improvements branch in r15620 to follow your suggested
process. ./autogen.sh now compiles all SWIG files into standalone C
files if you run it with the --release flag. Users of the bindings
won't need to have SWIG installed, if they download a release version
of Subversion.



P.S. The python-bindings-improvements branch now requires SWIG 1.3.24.
