At this point I would suggest that a new proposal add a synonym for 'fileprivate' in release X, with a plan to deprecate (warn on) 'fileprivate' in release X+1. X should also be greater than 3 because we're honestly still burned from the last discussion and bikeshedding, and the name would have to be significantly better than "fileprivate" to even go up for review.

We tried to come up with something good; this was the one the core team thought was the best choice. Sometimes that's how it goes (cf. "static"/"class", "associatedtype").
