Releasing Python GIL

How hard would it to be to have the Python SWIG bindings release Python's GIL on
all functions? Could this be done in one place in a .i file, or would each
method need it?

I'm writing a multithreaded server that's currently in Python and don't want to
block when it descends into svn's C code. The networking part is already in C++
and handles connection setup, marshalling, etc, but just gets the GIL when it
calls into Python code. This is all with Ice. I'll handle locking wiuth
