Excellent work! I've been enjoying watching all the WWDC livestreams. :)

About the changes to swift-corelibs-xctest: you mean simply using the new
Foundation APIs, correct? I don't imagine we'll be changing the XCTest API
very much -- that is, we won't be renaming `XCTestCase` to `TestCase`,

We discussed this [in Feburary](
and I believe the conclusion was that we wouldn't be applying the same
kinds of grand renaming to XCTest -- would just like to confirm that point.
