Just to bring a bit of closure here, so far my testing with the Python 3 bindings has been really encouraging. Once I wrapped my brain around the whole string/bytestring thing, upgrading existing consumers of the bindings has thus far been relatively straightforward.
As for the Docker-based release process stuff I attached in my previous message, I've since thrown that onto Github so anyone else who cares can benefit from/improve it. See https://github.com/cmpilato/subversion-dist .
Thanks again for the tarball assembly help!
I'm attaching what I used to make this work, which is a Docker-based process. Just expand the tarball, enter the resulting directory, and run ./docker-build.sh.

This was the key thing lacking! When I added the SWIG_PY_OPTS stuff you recommended to the release.py command-line, those files generated as expected. (And I wound up with what appears to be working build, including Python3 bindings.)
