True story, here is a good blog post about that topic: Protocol Oriented Programming is Not a Silver Bullet

No, this is not a POP language only, OOP is neither discourage nor unwelcome and it is a first class citizen. 
Telling people there are better ways in some / many scenarios and that deep inheritance hierarchies are bad is not the same thing: composition as spatter was not born with Swift.

I do not want to offend, but it is getting a bit irritating that whenever someone wants to improve object oriented patterns the answer resembles a "why bother? Isn't it an unsupported feature anyway?" :P.

People want to improve POP patterns? Good, it does not and should not upset or come at the expenses of other first class features... everybody is happy then... almost :).

PS: I also cannot wait for existentials to drop typealias ProtoB = Any<Proto> where Proto.A == B where B comes from a generic parameter list and A is an associated type.

Also, would you be so kind to provide an example where typepublic would be useful? Maybe you're thinking of allowing member access to subclasses? Would that fall into a possible "protected" realm?
