[swift-evolution] [Draft] Allow multiple conformances to the same protocol

protocol From {
    associatedtype FromType
    init(_ value: FromType)

The problem is, one type cannot implement multiple From "conversions".

==Proposed solution==

Allow specifying all associated types using generic syntax.

extension Int : From<Float> { }
extension Int : From<Double> { }

This is only allowed in conformance declarations.

==Future directions==

We can replace all *Convertible protocols with From and Into, which will be
defined similarly to Rust.
