Swash Helvetica

Has anyone designed swash caps that would go with Helvetica?

Yes, I know this is a bit riduculous, but I'm not entirely convinced that it's a foolish idea.

I've found Canterbury Swash Sans, which is a step in the right direction. Anything else?

You want Helvetica Flair by Phil Martin. AFAIK it hasn't been digitized yet.
Read a great interview by Mark Simonson at Typographica.

Ray Larabies Coolvetica offers a few swashesque details. Well, the G at least. It's for free.
