No buts. It's started already. For example, here's my Mac and Linux OpenGL
loader that's 100% pure swift. Over 3000 commands cleanly imported into
Swift without a single line of C or H code.


Swift isn't a dynamic language that needs an ecosystem of C packages to
supplement performance while at the same time being difficult to integrate
with C. It's exactly not that in every way. Come on in, the water's fine.
