[swift-evolution] [Proposal] More lenient subscript methods over Collections

If there is a method with such name in Range(with equal meaning) - then it 
seems like `clamping` will be the best solution here.
(as non-native speaker I don't feel this word is often used especially in 
software development, but.. it seems like anyone who is writing in Swift 
must be strong native English speaker/writer :-P I also mean all these 
naming conversions, verb/noun, -ing/-ed/-able etc ;-) )
