Regarding 1.3.x/STATUS item for SWIG compat check

From: C. Michael Pilato <cmpilato_at_collab.net>

I'm a little confused about this 1.3.x/STATUS item:

  * r17280, r18172, r18205, r18491
    Upgrade SWIG bindings to be compatible with SWIG 1.3.26-1.3.28
    Branch: 1.3.x-r17280

So, we're trying to make the SWIG bindings compatible with SWIG 1.3.26 -
1.3.28, huh?

Well, build/ac-macros/swig.m4 has this test:

    if test -n "$SWIG_VERSION" &&
       test "$SWIG_VERSION" -ge "103024" &&
       test "$SWIG_VERSION" -le "103028"; then

Which seems to put the lower bound at 1.3.24, inclusive. But then, it also
has this text:

      AC_MSG_WARN([Subversion requires 1.3.24 or later, and is known to work])
      AC_MSG_WARN([with versions up to 1.3.27])

Which puts the upper bound at 1.3.27. But that's consistent with
subversion/bindings/swig/INSTALL, which says:

   Step 1: Install a suitable version of SWIG (which is
            currently swig version 1.3.24 - 1.3.27).

What *exactly* is the range of SWIG versions we're claiming support for
here, folks?
