I had a look at both proposed SWIG patches and I very much want one of
them to be accepted (for the record, I wrote a very similar one a while
Three very similar patches for SWIG support in distutils do make the
point that distutils SWIG support is suboptimal.
Regarding Andi's and Christian's patches:
First of all, I agree with Bastian that a patch against current CVS
would be nice.
Second, we should decide which patch to select. After a brief
comparison, I prefer Andi's patch, because it is smaller.
Third, I agree with Bastian that leaving the option swig-cpp in place,
but adding a DepreciationWarning might provide a gently nagging upgrade
path and be consistent with Python's way of evolving.
Unless some major disagreement breaks out:
Andi, do you want to rework your patch and submit it to the sourceforge
I can try to find some time to do it myself if you cannot.
