I saw in the news on, that swig 2.0.6 is out with 
many bug fixes and enhancements for templates and target languages like 
php and python. Perhaps swig 2.0.6 is ready now for gdal?

I just checked, that swig 1.3.40 and 2.0.4 should be able to coexist at 
the same time. At least they do not share any filenames.
