Could anyone involved with the effort to get swift into thrift look at THRIFT-4547?  Thanks.

> We already have the option to generate Swift code in the Cocoa compiler, however large
parts of the (Objective-C) Cocoa Library still depend on Cocoa and  Objective-C.
> It would be good to have a native Swift library that doesn't depend on the Cocoa libraries.
> Design goals:
> - Fully compatible with the code that is currently generated by the Cocoa compiler (both
Objective-C and Swift).
> - Ability to run on Linux
> - Pure Swift, no Objective-C code.
> - No dependencies on closed source apple libraries
> - Keep the same interface, so that the library is compatible with the code the current
cocoa compiler generates
> - Better server support that the current Objective-C library.
> - Follow the new Swift packaging format to be compatible with the Swift Package manager
