[swift-dev] [Discuss] Remove SwiftExperimental

Hello all,

The SwiftExperimental <https://github.com/apple/swift/blob/master/stdlib/internal/SwiftExperimental/SwiftExperimental.swift> library’s stated purpose is to be a place where experimental library features could be explored without fear of committing to a stable interface.  At least, that was its goal many years ago when significant work on it was last done.  Since then, SwiftExperimental has sat untouched except for passing committers that need to alter parts of its implementation for language changes.  

I would like to remove this library and target from the project, but first I’d like to solicit opinions about this change.  In particular, if there are any users of the library, I’d like to know.  I’d also like to know if there would be any interest in reviving a project like this in a different form - ideally out of tree.
