Yes, but that's not really my point. Why do it this "magical" way? It's
already possible (and actually very easy) to wrap C modules such as
libdispatch in a Swifty API (see Venice <https://github.com/VeniceX/Venice>,
OpenSSL <https://github.com/Zewo/OpenSSL>, PostreSQL
<https://github.com/Zewo/PostgreSQL> as examples). I know that LibDispatch
is special to Swift and Apple, but I just don't see a reason to give it
such a special treatment.
