[Distutils] Does the SWIG support work?

Hi all --

some months ago, I added completely experimental and untested support
for compiling SWIG extensions to the Distutils.  I even documented it!
But I have been unable to verify for myself that it works, since I have
been unable to build SWIG on my home PC.  I haven't heard any reports of 
success, and the first reports of failure were from 4Thought last week.

So: can anyone vouch for whether the Distutils SWIG support works at
all, does the "right thing", etc?  What's broken about it, what works?
Should it even be documented?
