I'll politely disagree and point out you *must* use fileprivate in order
to get what it provides. It's unavoidable in that sense.

As the access control change has been implemented for what only can be
described in a number of weeks, it's disappointing that a feature I used
to great effect in prior versions of Swift has already been relegated to
"if you don't like the name, don't use it."
