I've migrated multiple projects, both for my own use and for clients.
I've taught Swift 3 to my colleagues as we upgrade, and have to help
seasoned developers through confusion. I've taught Swift 3 to people who
don't know Swift, and have to help novice developers through confusion.
I watch as other developers fight this, such as on Twitter, while
fileprivate is a joke unto its own. That's hardly theoretical.
