Wow, that would be the first ever application we know about written in Swift
that uses WPE, which is really cool! :)

Side note: I have not been following Swift much, and I am just learning now
that it has been made to work well on GNU/Linux already a good while ago.
I wonder how complicated it may have been to use WPE's GLib-based API in
Swift — is there any particular pain point that you might remember and which
could have used a better API on the WPE WebKit side?

Thanks a lot for commenting on the WebKit bug and sending the PR for Cog, it
is very appreciated. I think there are good chances of having the support for
setting the scaling factor merged.
