Thank you for the response. It seems that you do a lot of the
management/development of the SourceKit tool. Obviously you are way more
knowledgeable than me about this.

Forgive the impertinence, but _why_ is the API not considered supported
or stable? It is obvious Xcode makes use of it and I think Xcode is
considered a stable product? Enough of that though.

The far more important question is what can I do to change this
position? Even more important is there anything that I can do to change
the stance before Swift 3.0 is shipped?
