Take the generator check out of Modules/CMakeDetermineSwiftCompiler.cmake
to get rid of the up-front error.  See "Modules/CMakeAddNewLanguage.txt"
(many of the steps are already done).

Edit Modules/CMakeSwiftInformation.cmake and add settings for variables
the CMake{C,CXX,Fortran}Information.cmake modules for examples.  The
available placeholders are in cmLocalGenerator::ExpandRuleVariable.

If all the compile/link steps used for C and C++ map well to switfc
then it should be fairly straightforward.  If other steps are needed
or the steps have wildly different semantics then more in-depth changes
to the actual generators may be needed.
