I have no idea what the swif library could be, but in principle it is
possible to wrap libraries written in C/C++ with swig to python.
BTW: mingw32 uses Microsofts msvcrt.dll. This is the counterpart of 
the glibc on Linux. Of course the library does not have most of the 
posix functionality. If you use posix functions like fork you have
to use cygwin instead of mingw.

Can you tell what is not working for you with the example above?
