Back then, when using them, I often ended up looking through the generated
swig sources to get essential information about how exactly something was
mapped. So it was basically about at least 4 editor windows on the screen:
my script, some header file(s), the generated swig sources, the
implementation of the mapped function(s).

It was painful, yes, but also fascinating. I learned a lot about the whole
subversion code ;-)
Granted, that's not helpful if you just want to get something done fast...
