I've been providing an apt-get repository for Xenial, Wily, and Trusty (see
as an example) and the name I chose was swift-3.0, similar to gcc-4.6,
gcc-4.8, clang-3.6, etc.  In addition I decided not to break the packages
up; so many tutorials, examples, and packages will utilize Foundation,
Dispatch, etc. that separating them seemed to satisfy only that itch to

I'll continue to provide this non-canonical repo (I need to get it updated
for the latest and great swift-3.0), and if anyone is interested in taking
it further the sets of scripts I used to put things together is here
