Would this be a temporary limitation? I'd prefer to see Swift available to any development environment even on Apple Platforms.  It contributes to the message of openness.

I have some workarounds in place that I'd like to remove since they suppress linker coalescing of some constant strings. Would anyone object to us requiring using Xcode 7.3 to develop Swift for OS X and other Apple platforms? If not, we could conditionalize the workarounds behind a flag, though that's additional complexity and testing surface I'd like to avoid.
