Hi Tony,

Looking forward to all this on Linux!

On the same topic, I looked at the Measurement Swift type and did a diff between the shims in the swift repo and the version in corelibs-foundation and saw quite a few differences. Is this something that can be improved or it is a consequence of the platform differences?

There are some details that need to be worked out around bridging of types like NSNumber (since bridging doesn't exist on Linux we may need to avoid using 'as' in a few places), but in general it could be as easy as copying the files from the Foundation overlay on Darwin into the other project.
