[swift-evolution] Removing Variadic Parameters.

agreed, that would be odd — but I really hope that there will be a nice alternative in the future.

One very fundamental thing is missing in Swift: Fixed-size arrays.

I can't predict if or how this issue will be tackled, but the most elegant way I can see would be generic values:
let array: Array<size: 5, Int>
If this happens, it should be possible to create arrays with a minimal size as well — and additionally, you could impose other restrictions (max length, even number of elements, length mod x = n…).

I repeat that this is all speculation, and it might never happen… but would you be fine with this alternative?
