it indeed doesn't look like this was mapped to a friendly Python argument. But you can 
always use the generic options keyword to specify the command line parameters like you do 
with ogr2ogr (note that if you use options, all other dedicated parameters will be ignored).

Contributions to add a dedicated argument for clipSrc are welcome. Hint: edit
the VectorTranslateOptions() method in swig/include/python/gdal_python.i
