[swift-evolution] Any consideration for directoryprivate as a compliment to fileprivate?

You most certainly offended no one! Quite the opposite. This being an open
source community, every contribution counts and, imho,  you did nothing but
to *contribute *to swift's evolution!

Thanks for backing typeprivate proposal. We have been looking for ways to
restructure our proposal based on all the fine arguments raised by everyone
during the discussion, however we have not found time to complete it. We
will definitely keep in touch in the following days. I believe your
proposal really relates to ours. The real urge is to revisit access level
controls, if need it be, and create finer grained modifiers for better


This being said, the solution might even reduce the number of access
control modifiers and not just add one more to the pile. I think we all aim
to have the right amount of modifiers for the right amount of use cases.
Should they be organised and designed in a way that better conveys their
intent, then I believe the number will not be the number one problem.


I do agree with you. It is sometimes hard to keep track of all the
proposals/discussions being raised. While I do believe this is an open
enough forum for everyone to participate in, it can become quite hard to
have the full spectrum of discussions in sight at first glance.
