These are approved now.  There's a new one but I'm going to punt on it.  If it
gets approved and we have an RC2 (probably will) then maybe it will make it
anyway.  But not going to hold up the process for that.

This has been resolved and nominated for backport.  Need to get it approved.

If someone doesn't beat me to it I'm going to block the use of SWIG 3 for now
and adjust our release process to use the most recent SWIG 2 version for the
pre-generated sources.  If we find solutions to this we can loosen this back up
in a subsequent 1.9.x release.

So once the pending backports are approved I'll roll a RC1.
