Ok, I'll try it out once Swift 4 is officially released. So, that means
Swift 4 will work on Xcode 8, I suppose.

Sorry… I should have said "couldn't install Xcode 9 *with* Swift 4". I've
never installed Swift separately, I used whatever Xcode brought me. But
since Xcode 9 couldn't be installed on my Mac, I got no other options.

Thank you.
