Right, and this is actually what I'm proposing.  You only hit the service
when you are editing a swig interface file and you need to generate updated
code.  Otherwise the latest version of the bindings is already checked out
in your repository.

And even then, you only *really* need to hit it when you physically cannot
(for whatever reason) or do not want to install swig on your machine.
There can still be a local path, that says "use the swig installed on my
machine".  Of course, if we're going to standardize on a version, it will
be the version of swig that the service runs.   So whatever version you
have on your machine -- if you intend to check in those bindings -- need to
be the same version used by the service.
