> In brief: This has been deferred until after Swift 3. We want to be able to provide read-write access to read-write properties, but Swift can't do that yet. (And at this point in Swift's release cycle, we're not really accepting new features unless they have very large source compatibility impacts, which this change wouldn't.)
