> I think it should be a bug that CFReadStream cannot be bridged to (NS)InputStream, as otherwise there’s no way to intertwine Sockets (CFSockets) with SwiftFoundation. As the implementation already uses a CFReadStream internally (https://github.com/apple/swift-corelibs-foundation/blob/d3872cb094124d5dd189839505ae73e2fa717cfd/Foundation/NSStream.swift#L122), it would be a matter of adding an initializer. However the value is private, so adding the initializer cannot be done from an extension.

(including the list this time) AIUI, Core Foundation is an implementation detail of the corelibs implementation of Foundation. It isn't intended to be used directly from Swift code on Linux.
