This is the result of the Google Summer of Code project I have been
mentoring this year:
It went very well and made it into a SWIG release already.

I've tried to enable directors for Xapian's PHP bindings with this
However this doesn't actually work - it seems that the matchdecider that
the C++ layer gets is NULL. The SWIG testsuite has good coverage for
directors, so we know that PHP directors are working in general. I
haven't investigated in detail why it doesn't in this case, mostly
because I'm trying to focus on getting to a 1.2.0 release, and we can
enable PHP directors in 1.2.x without breaking existing scripts.

I'd guess maybe a month or two, but it really depends how everything
If you want to try to work out what's going on sooner, that'd be great.
