That the Apple devs are not going to be working on x86 support, due to lack of bandwidth and other higher priorities, and that the community is free to provide it. However patches related to making it work on that, and other, architectures are welcome.

Note that Swift does support additional architectures on other Apple platforms (32- and 64-bit ARM for iOS and i386 for iOS simulator). Adding x86_32 Linux should be easier than adding a brand new OS or architecture would be.
