No. The whole point of SWIG is to provide a consistent interface to *multiple*
programming languages. There are multiple SWIG consumers for Subversion, not
just Python. If Python alone moves to ctypes, it will mean that the SWIG code
for the other consumers will be slowly be ignored and bugs not fixed.

If there is a problem with the way that the current Python API is implemented in
SWIG, fix that, don't abandon the other languages. Feel free to fork your own
implementation if you want, but the project should continue to support/fix the
SWIG bindings so that all can share...
