[swift-evolution] [Proposal] Eliminating Swift's Screaming Snake Case Identifiers

What do you think of:
#file, #lineNumber, #column, #symbol (e.g. Swift.Dictionary.init), #module, #contextDictionary
and calling it a day?
* using contextDictionary allows expandability and can subsume all existing context elements, indexed presumably by the same names
* renaming function to symbol takes care of self.dynamicType as well
* file and lineNumbers are gimmes
* column is apparently well liked by some (not going to kick someone's dog on this)
* adding module fills a big hole.
No tuples for Doug, covers some of Chris's points.

I never find myself wanting only some of properties and usually don't include them simply because it takes longer to write the format properly, if I can get them all in one go it's certainly a win.
