It is worth noting that this implementaiton has a few behavioral differences between this implementation and the one implemented in objective-c. Part of this difference is due to features like QoS not being cross platform portable or KVO not yet implementable in Swift. This is very much a work-in-progress; it needs unit tests and and a bit more polish, but hopefully it is good enough to get some work started in some other places.

Great to see progress on this.

It does fail this simple test case, though:

    func test_BlockBasedAPI() {
        let queue = NSOperationQueue()
        let expectation = expectationWithDescription("did run block")
        queue.addOperationWithBlock {
        waitForExpectationsWithTimeout(0.001, handler: nil)

I'm not sure what's going on there. I was using this on my branch for NSURLSession since it has a delegate queue that I need to run callbacks on.
