[swift-evolution] Make non-void functions @warn_unused_result by default

I vote +1 in favor of making warn_unused_result the default. It's simple, elegant, logical, functional, and will reduce stdlib clutter.
As for replacing it? Although I'd probably be okay with suppress_unused_warning, please consider optional hey_no_worries_mate_on_unused, unused_is_mellow, or dont_harsh_my_unused. Supporting _ = pop() without further warning is icing on the cake, as it enables the behavior to be established at either the API or consuming end.

> “pop()” is an example of the comparatively-rare method that one might want to annotate to avoid the warning: the side-effect is useful even if you’re dropping the result. We’re only talking about making warn_unused_result the default, not making it the only option.
