I have to say, this might be the most swifty of the swift proposals.
There's something about it that's elegant and beautiful, so big +1 from me.
I do think Never makes more sense, but I understand the clarity that NoReturn brings.
For a feature that most probably won't even use, maybe we could get away with it being Never...
