I'm puzzeled by the behavior of the automatic coercion. Specifically when something will work and when it will not. It at least has something to do with the platform. That much I have tracked down.
I've attached a file, bridge.swift, that on Linux will fail to compile with the error: cannot convert value of type 'NSData' to type 'Data' in coercion. However, on Darwin it compiles just fine. (The contents of the file just incase it gets stripped) import Foundation let md = NSData(bytes: [0x0D, 0x0A, 0x0D, 0x0A], length: 4) _ = md as Data On Linux the `md` has a method `_bridgeToSwift()` that returns the `Data` I am looking for. But of course, the Darwin version does not. Which begs the question what is the cross-platform way of doing things? I'm hoping it is not `if #os(Linux)`...
