Printing contents of file using client API in Python

In a mod_python context, I wrote the following code, where req is the Apache
request object:

    req.content_type = 'text/plain'

    stream = svn_stream_create(req, pool)
    svn_stream_set_write(stream, write)
    svn_client_cat(stream, url, revision, ctx, pool)

    return apache.OK

def write(req, data):

This way, I hope to be able to stream the data to the web browser as it gets
written to the stream by Subversion. However, I'm getting the following

    stream = svn_stream_create(req, pool)
TypeError: Expected a pointer

I suppose this error comes from swig. It doesn't seem to like receiving my req
object as a void*.

I googled around for an example of usage of svn_stream_create() in Python but
couldn't find anything except this:
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2003-09/0287.shtml. Basically it looks like
what I want to do should be feasible.

All examples of using svn_client_cat() in Pythin I could find used a file
stream, which is not what I want.

Any advice from a Python bindings guru?
