Correct or not, I'vee seen it as a convention in many projects to  
include pre-SWIG'd sources (ie Mapserver, Qgis, GDAL).  While  
developers may be OK with adding SWIG to their toolbox (though I  
haven't installed it on my new Mac because I don't need it any more),  
users who build from source may not have SWIG, and may not want to  
install something that's not used at runtime but only for compilation.
