I think the best way is to submit a patch to SourceForge.
Here is the SF page for patches, there is also a distutils category:

It would be nice to have it against CVS, or at least against newest
upstream version (2.3.4).
There are some developer guidelines on the python homepage:

I think it is not necessary here to break backwards compatibility
(ie. removing --swig-cpp).
As you wrote above the --swig-cpp options is equivalent to
- --swig-opts="-c++" ? This way you can keep the old option there, and
perhaps print a deprecation message.
