Swift fix-its are proliferous.

- Mutate a `let` and Xcode will let you change it to a `var`
- Mutate in a struct's `get` and Xcode will let you change it to be `mutating`
- I imagine that with this change: inherit from default `final` and Xcode will let you change it to be `inheritable`

Generally, all the above are questionable to solve for you with a single click, but at least you have the option ;)

I like `sealed` at the very least. But I'd be happy (maybe prefer?) `final` by default.
