[swift-evolution] protocol can only be used as a generic constraint because it has Self or associated type requirements

Keep in mind that a language feature like binding/constraining associated types is not a complete solution for real use-cases, so we would still need AnySequence<Element> in the library. Otherwise it would be SequenceType<Generator: SomeGenerator>, which binds a type that you don't actually want to expose.
