Thank you very much!

With this patch, I confirmed that each apr_pool * argment in C API supplied
from corresponding pool object if it is supplied by the Python wrapper function
(by reading _wrap_svn_client_propget5() in svn_client.c generated by
SWIG 3.0.12, for Python 2).

However, I couldn't confirm that the "_parent_pool" attribute in wrapper
object returned by wrapper function point to "result_pool" object in such case,
yet. I doubt it still points to "scratch_pool" object because variable
"_global_py_pool" points to "scratch_pool" object when both of "result_pool"
and "scratch_pool" are provided on such APIs.

svn_swig_pl_get_pool(), svn_swig_py_get_pool(), svn_swig_rb_get_pool(),
which is used in "default" typemaps for apr_pool_t *, only examine whether the
last argment passed by wrapper function is pool wrapper object or not, and "in"
typemaps for apr_pool_t * don't see $input in Perl and Ruby bindings.
Thus I think they have same issue, too.
