Gonna be a while, having to slog through lots of apple tomfoolery to get it to build. So don't get too excited.

This won't be happening for a while, if ever, it requires some changes to binutils in order to build (primarily linker problems), and those changes could introduce instability into other parts of the system, per conversation with ikey.

Moving down to Wishlist for now until other problems are resolved. @SFaulken has the work in place to enable this when the time is right

Wondering now that Swift 3 is out if you're going to do Swift 3 or this? Swift 2.2 isn't really supported anymore.

I would love to see Swift3 in the repos.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for almost two years now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
