[swift-corelibs-dev] encodeEncodable/decodeDecodable

I’m fairly out of touch with Swift these days, but I took a quick look at importing the encodeEncodable/decodeDecodable changes from stdlib into SwiftFoundation.

I ran into a bunch of bridging issues with the PropertyListDecoder, where it would be balk on the encoded property list types being Foundation instead of Swift types (e.g. “Expected to decode Dictionary<String, Any> but found a dictionary instead”).

Not sure the best way to workaround these: I started doing so explicitly in the unbox methods, but it didn’t feel intuitively right (apart from all the boilerplate code, sometimes the input value would be a Foundation object, other times not). I haven’t had time to investigate further.
