I found some references to Unmanaged<T> on the web as well, but couldn't figure out how to use it with Swift classes. It seems like Unmanaged<T> exists for interfacing with objects that are not created/managed via the Swift runtime. But as soon as I instantiate a Swift class, it uses the Swift runtime. Is there a way to create an object of a Swift class such that it's not managed by the Swift runtime?
