+1 to the concept of the proposal.

- ExpressibleByIntegerLiteral > ExpressibleAsIntegerLiteral
- Syntax.IntergerLiteralProtocol > ExpressibleByIntergerLiteral
- Syntax.Literal.IntegerProtocol > Syntax.IntergerLiteralProtocol

Increasing clarity of the names feels in line with the direction of
Swift, but I am not sure which naming convention would be the most

I have not previously looked at how this is implemented in other

I casually followed the original discussion surrounding SE-0041.

I browsed the recent discussion on names to get a sense of which names
were being discussed in the community to try to offer some feedback with
minimal bike-shedding.
