Apparently I anonymized myself when I signed up to this mailing list.
Apologies for the strange name. I had forgotten I had done that. My name is
Vicky and I'm a grad student in high performance computing. My questions
still stand and if anyone is using Apple's Swift in any work, I would love
to get in touch.
