The older swig packages weirdly only provide versionless .so files --
libswigpl.so, for example. So packages like subversion end up with
dependencies on that directly. Really, there should be something like
libswigpl.so.0, and the other package would have dependencies on that. The
new swig packages fix the problem, but until the old other package are
rebuilt against it, they'll be confused.

At least, that's my understanding. Anyone who knows better, feel free to
correct me. :)
