+1 to this. I would really like to see what is and isn't in scope for Swift
3's generics system. Among other things, it would help focus the
community's proposals and ideas for the evolution of the type system. An
example, people have expressed interest in HKTs, and perhaps a discussion
can be opened on how Swift 3's type system can lay the foundation for
further changes.
