Python bindings svn_wc_entry() is broken

>>> svn.wc.entry('nonexistentpath', aa, False)
<libsvn.core.GenericSWIGWrapper instance at 0x5d820c>

The problem is with functions that deliberately return a NULL pointer to
signify "does not exist".
The correct Python translation of this would be None, but the bindings are
incorrectly returning an internal wrapper object. This is bad, because any
code making any real use of svn_wc_entry will be testing the return value
either for truth or None-ness in order to tell whether the entry was found,
and this will break that.
