Swift is not a scripting language, it is a compiled language like
Objective-C. You can't use Objective-C in the IDE and you won't be able
to use Swift. It will be possible to write extensions (externals) in
Swift but because the engine is C++ they will need a standard C or
Objective-C wrapper to be able to talk to the engine.
