It doesn't really fit with Swift 2.x since it explicitly disallows
currying of a particular type of function call, but it does fit with
Swift 3.0, and that's kind of the whole point.

A quick reading.

Partial application of calls to super seems like an extremely niche use-
case, and one that can be trivially worked around by writing a local
closure, so it seems like a good tradeoff.
