Big +1.

I've asked specifically to get some kind of conditional compilation on corelibs-foundation <https://lists.swift.org/pipermail/swift-corelibs-dev/Week-of-Mon-20151228/000287.html> being used.  corelibs-founcation is currently incompatible with Darwin Foundation, and so it is impractical to make a single codebase build for both.

But building the same application against both Foundations and spotting differences is one of the important ways we're going to spot bugs.

So I think the code quality of Foundation ultimately hinges on getting some feature like this in the language.
