Separate from other feedback, we’ve noticed another minor wrinkle: XCTest uses the Objective-C runtime to discover tests in XCTestCase subclasses. While in the long term there is probably a better discovery method that works cross-platform, a more near-term solution would continue to infer @objc for methods in XCTestCase subclasses that look like tests, e.g., methods that have the right signature, start with “test”, and appear in XCTestCase subclasses.
