And yet here we are, using an IDE written in LiveCode by a team 
comprised of dozens of company and community developers working together 
on a single code base.

The Business Edition has already gone that direction:

Probably at least an order of magnitude cheaper to upgrade to Business 
than to rewrite the whole thing in Swift from scratch.  And with LC you 
get a cross-platform solution, while even if you did find a GUI 
framework for Swift for Windows you'd likely be writing a lot of forked 
code for each platform.
