As far as I understand, the first priority is not fixing issues in the
current type checker and runtime for existing generics features (e.g.,
implement recursive generic constraints to eliminate protocol Indexable
from the standard library), and incremental improvements for the current
generics system that allow the standard library to properly express and
constrain existing concepts -- like 'where' constraints on associated types.
