[swift-evolution] Overloading assignment operator

The ability to overload operators is very useful.  However, that utility is diminished without the ability to overload the simple assignment operator ( = ).  I vaguely recall reading somewhere that there is a reason for this having to do with syntax ambiguity.  Can this problem be solved so that = can be overloaded?
