[OpenAFS] building swig based interfaces

I've decided to start a project for building a swig based python 
interface for afs commands/functions. The advantage is that a swig 
interface can be further used for creating interfaces for other 
languages. Currently I know about only one limited python-afs interface 
which calls the afs binary commands instead of implementing an interface 
to the C code (https://github.com/openafs-contrib/afspy). On the other 
hand the (to my knowledge) only interface: AFSPerl 
(http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/NOG/AFS-2.6.3/) uses suboptimal 
interfaces making it incompatible with 1.6.x and 64 bit 

So if you can give me some pointers about where should I look in the 
openafs source for the declaration of different functions? My first 
guess would be the files in libadmin, but I'm probably wrong :-(

Thank you in advance!
