You surely know that much of your direct code use is from distributions, not individuals who build from source. And in their development version there often simply isn't such a choice. I have SWIG 3.0.5 in my distribution development tree and it is only going forward. The swig project is working on the python regressions, and I will patch the svn or swig source to get it all to work. Would you not rather want to state that some items are not supported with SWIG 3.0+ than erroring out altogether? (Which is incorrect by itself because the python regression did not occur between 3.0.0 and 3.0.2)
