swig2 installs 'swig2' on its own, so that should probably be left
We should be trying to work towards a more consistent handling of
packages-with-multiple-versions, and I think in general we should try
to use different PKGBASEs when we have multiple versions of things in
pkgsrc, so I think the initial suggestion is a good idea.
We need to do this for emacs as well (so the packages are called
emacs20, emacs21, emacs22, etc.) but it's kind of a mess and so far I
haven't found a way to pull one end of the tangle without having to do
everything all at once. (That is, change PKGBASE, move the emacs23
package, provide an emacs meta-package, add multiversion support,
