Question: I do not own a mac. As I've noticed, the debugger and REPL are coupled together. That said, is it possible to eventually use REPL to output Gtk+ windows using a future language binding in place of the Xcode playgrounds that are missing in Ubuntu? I'm not a noob; this isn't my first time doing something with a language, but before I invest the time of my co-workers and I in Swift, I'd like to know if it will ever be possible to use the Linux port to do real-time mocking up of apps in development similar to Xcode. I understand REPL is run from the CLI only, but if it can open windows in a language-bound toolkit like Gtk+ from that basic CLI, we will probably develop our own IDE to use Swift.
