> 1) All swig bindings will be regenerated as part of the release process.
> 2) We will move up to SWIG 1.3.39 by for the release generation.

> about updating bindings around release time (we already have removed 
> this requirement for perl and .net, btw.  Now we would remove it for 
> the others).
