Yeah, I saw that.  I made a very simple swig input file, and the wrapper
file swig 1.3.36 produces won't make it through mkoctfile.  It's the
symbol table changes (3.0 -> 3.2) that messes it up.

Aaaand, guess what, I tried it on swig's trunk, and there it works like
a charm!  They are using the OCTAVE_API_VERSION_NUMBER define rather

As it stands now swig has some hack to implement a half-hearted
module/namespace thing ontop of one single DEFUN.  I wish swig had taken
another path and prefixed symbols, making each function have its own
DEFUN.  Or yet even better, have true namespaces/modules implemented in
Octave :]
