[swift-dev] large dictionary literal overflows swiftc stack

Ok I will test with swift 3, but just to avoid any confusion I am not a developer on PerfectLib. I was just using that file as a test case for my application that is based on the swiftc code base. My application is designed to consume arbitrary swift 2.2 code. If there is a problem with swift 3 then I suppose it can be fixed, but if swift 3 has no issues then it looks like I have few options for remediation.

I have to support swift 2.2 for the time being because I have to support the current release of xcode. I will upgrade to swift 3 when it is released.

I understand your motivation, but I would still recommend trying to
update your code (on a branch) to Swift 3.  This way you will get a
preview of the changes, would be able to provide feedback, and maybe
even find issues with the changes that we are making before Swift 3 is
finalized in a release.  There is benefit for both your library and
the Swift community.
