Mike, thanks for reminding me that I'd done this. I didn't like it at
the time (when I thought it only impacted 1.7), but I'd forgotten all
about it. I wasted a lot of time trying to make SWIG do it what I
wanted, until I remembered the minimum of what really needed to be
done. And though I suspect no one has been using this since it was
terribly terribly broken (actually still is at least a little broken),
you're right I shouldn't be changing interfaces.

Hyrum, please merge r932942 on top of r876245. I think I've
addressed Mike's concerns and I believe I haven't screwed up making
stuff work for you. Since I've never been able to reproduce this
particular problem, I'm uncomfortable proposing it for backporting
until it makes it through a test run. If it works for you, let me
know and I will propose the pair for backporting (or you may do it for
me as I can't monitor the list that often).

Thanks,
