A couple more DispatchSource issues - I’m getting a crash (on all platforms) if a source deallocs before the cancellation handler has been called, which seems to be a known issue.

To get around it on Darwin, I was taking an unmanaged retained ref to the source and releasing it in the cancellation handler. But it turns out that on Linux,
    let s: DispatchSourceRead = […]
crashes llvm. Giving the typechecker a hint
tells me that type 'DispatchSourceRead' does not conform to protocol ‘AnyObject’ which seems weird. Is it still class-based on Linux, or something different?

I ended up doing this
    var rs: DispatchSourceRead? = rsource
    var ws: DispatchSourceWrite? = wsource
    rsource.setCancelHandler { _ = rs?.handle; rs = nil }   //Access a property to shut the bloody compiler up,
    wsource.setCancelHandler { _ = ws?.handle; ws = nil }   //and to ensure the var isn't optimised away.
so all the above is moot, but I thought I should report it.
