[swift-evolution] Remove Failable Initializers

So we could try to bridge `init?` from objective-c so they become `init()
throws` but perhaps a less disruptive solution is to only allow `init?` for
swift classes that inherit from @objc ? I can't see how it is possible to
let `init throw` bridge back to objective-c cleanly.

I have updated my proposal to explore both of these options.
