[swift-evolution] [Post Swift 3] [Proposal] Introducing `group` mechanism

Speaking of C++, is the “group” keyword even necessary? To borrow your own example from earlier, it seems like we could just as easily say this:
public struct A {
    public { // all public
        func member1() {}
        func member2() {}
        func member3() {}
    public labelName {// all public, accessible under `foo.lableName`
        func member4() {}
        func member5() {}
        func member6() {}
(which is not C++’s syntax, I know… the comment just got me thinking about it is all)

The file might not contain only a single type equal to the filename. Also if there is another huge type present and you have a small display and currently looking at some specific member in the middle of that that type, which assistance have to find out the type of that member? Here we go again: you’re own assistant will your own negative argument ‘scrolling’.
