Question about the state of the Python SWIG bindings

From: Brian Munroe <brian.e.munroe_at_gmail.com>

This might not be the correct forum to ask this, but here goes.

In the ./subversion/bindings/swig/INSTALL file, it states that the
status of the Python SWIG bindings are:

* Python

  The Python bindings are fairly well developed, although there are some
  missing parts, most notably, there is no useful wrapping of the svn_ra APIs.

Now I am pretty much a newbie when it comes to SWIG. I understand
what it does, and have done the trivial 'hello, world' with it, but
that is about it.

I was wondering, if all SWIG does is help generate the Python bindings
from the C version, why is it missing parts? Does SWIG not do a
perfect job of wrapping the C bindings? Is that what the INSTALL is

I am thinking about using them in an upcoming project and I wanted to
identify where the shortcomings will be.

Just curious, and thanks in advance.
