I mocked up an example of the readme.md file:
I guessed at the Swift For Windows version based on the last build date;
I imagine the protocol for getting a link added to the list would
require the version of Swift being provided, regardless of the version
of the project; Swift for Windows self-versions 1.6, which doesn't
indicate what actual version of Swift they're using.
Presumably those projects that support the CI bots could get the badges;
I didn't want to adhere too closely to the original platform table
without considering all the ramifications so I didn't include them.
