I’m confused about swift-corelibs-foundation only being part of the Linux distribution. Are you saying that when Swift 3.0 ships, import Foundation on OS X and iOS will still import the Objective-C framework? If yes, I’m very surprised, and I think many people will be. One of the goals of swift-corelibs-foundation (README) says:

	• Provide a level of OS independence, to enhance portability.

How can it be portable if different platforms don’t share the same underlying core libraries?
