I disagree with the suggestion. Unlike C++'s templates, a Swift's generic function is semantically a single function. One can say that together with a metatype parameter, we pass in witness table.

What I think we should do is make metatypes easier to use. Adrian and I have a PR that has already been waiting for almost a month: https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/pull/553
Plus, removal of .self could simplify such calls.
