[swift-dev] Question about demangling

The Swift runtime exports a function to demangle Swift symbols, swift_demangle. See source: https://github.com/apple/swift/blob/32d15d8539c43ff26b599f7c4a08a79a10d4bf98/stdlib/public/runtime/Reflection.mm#L1200.
This function uses the default mangling options, as defined by `Demangle::DemangleOptions()`. I also see there is an argument called `flags`, which I believe eventually will allow demangling options to be changed. However, this is not yet implemented.
The format for the demangled symbols with I would like it, ideally, “Module.Class.Method”. The default options include a variety of other things, including argument count and types. What is my best approach for getting these desired demangling options?
