You are confusing SWAT with SWAT2.  The bug represents a simple patch to
our wscript files that won't take long to sort out, but which I don't
quite have time for right now.  Blocker bugs like this go in and out of
that tracker each day, it isn't a great drama.

SWAT is pure C.  The various SWAT2 efforts don't seem to have come to a
productive result, which is sad, but that is up to those maintaining
those efforts, which are outside Samba at this point.
