I don't see why not. But I think it probably belongs in apr.swg
instead of svn_global.swg.

For that matter, the stuff I did in svn_global.swg for the Ruby
bindings probably belongs in apr.swg too. Another change I'd like to
see is to define the typemaps in terms of the apr types instead of
long long and unsigned long long. I experimented with this, but I was
never able to make it work quite right.

Ultimately, I'd like us to generate a little more synergy among the
differenent SWIG based bindings so we are using the same techniques to
accomplish the same goals (whether it is hacking the SWIG type files
or "%clear"ing the non-portable types or anything else). (Currently
the Perl bindings won't compile with VC6 with the same problem that
Masaru discovered in the Python bindings, and I've worked around
locally for the Ruby bindings.)
