No CompilerManager for AppCode?

I am trying to implement a plugin which reacts to Swift compiler output and tries to help with the often unclear error messages within AppCode (fault of Apple's compiler not AppCode, I know).
I found the CompilerManager API and the CompilationStatusListener interface to react to compiler events/results. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be included in AppCode's version of the plugin API.

Is this correct? If so, why is it and will it change sometime?

Thanks,
Mat

Yes, this is correct. AppCode uses a completely different toolchain for compilation, based on XCode, and doesn't use any of IntelliJ IDEA's extensibility APIs for the compilation process. As far as I know there are no plans to change this.

Thanks for the clarification Dmitry, I filed an issue, hoping this will somehow be changed or made more flexible for plugin developers.
