The very first thing I considered writing in Swift is an implementation of
Plack (http://plackperl.org/). It seems like every language benefits from
having something like this (Rack in Ruby, WSGI in Python, etc.), even if
only to insulate web applications from the web server implementation. I'm
not sure if a language benefits from having 20 things like this, at least
in the long run…
