[swift-corelibs-dev] NSTask and NSFileHandle implementation

While we’re on the subject, I’ve been out of the loop for a little while: how’s the Linux-side implementation of dispatch sources looking these days?  In particular, I’m interested in the status of DISPATCH_SOURCE_TYPE_READ and DISPATCH_SOURCE_TYPE_PROC.

Right now, NSTask is using Good Ol’ CFRunLoops for it’s event handling, and I’d really like to move that over to GCD as soon as I can.

I can’t say if anyone else on this list is working on this right now, but if not and if you’re really interested in finishing NSFileHandle, I would (very happily!) take care of the relevant implementation in NSTask.
