in reply to $perl_extension ? require SWIG : require XS;

SWIG is nice if you've got a decent C API already and you don't want to be bugged down with the perl internals and/or you want to support multiple languages. XS is great for precise control or if you need to do a lot of customization of the API to make it work perlishly and you can't afford to do all that wrapping in perl. In other words, it depends.
