Hi Robert,

This is something we really do need some help with. Our goal is to have the Linux version match the Darwin version exactly.

There is also a PR up to change some of the results of the automatic renaming by the importer, here:

https://github.com/apple/swift/pull/2093 <https://github.com/apple/swift/pull/2093>

So we should take those into account as well.

- Tony
