[swift-evolution] Seriously! Freeze Swift For Two Years After Release 3.0 !

The designers of Swift have adopted a pragmatic approach to things: get a language that can be useful practically quickly, then improve it as things go. Its very Apple-like and I think it makes a lot of sense. We have a lot of useful changes in Swift 3.0, but the language is still far from complete. Recent discussions make it very obvious that some fundamental features are still in flux or are misunderstood (e.g the function argument label discussion), and the generics implementation has a lot of important stuff missing. Freezing Swift now  would mean suspending it in a beta state. 

So, no, a strong disagree with the premise of this thread from me.
