We have confirmed that you CANNOT build SVN bindings with Python >
2.4. Here is quote from my build engineer:

"In the first place, both autogen.sh and configure both checks for Python
2.4 using the build/find_python.sh. If Subversion don't find Python 2.4
then configure clearly warns
"Python 2.4 or later is required to run the testsuite
or to use the Subversion Python bindings"

If we continue by fooling configure. Next stop is at 'make swig-py'
while compiling libsvn_swig_py/swigutil_py.c. This is because of
missing 'Py_RETURN_NONE' in python.h."

He mentions autogen.sh but we are not running that, we are just
running configure from the tarball.

Comments? Is this what we want?
