[swift-dev] Highlighting other platforms for Swift?

Hi Ted-

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.
