[swift-evolution] Should we relax restriction on closing over outer scope in class declarations?

If I understand correctly we are speaking of class definitions inside functions, so this doesn't affect classes defined at the global scope, which are what the beginner will first be told. Teaching them about defining classes in other places would then wait until they know more about closure, scopes and variable capture.

I would suggest treating a class defined within a function body the same way a function defined within a function body would be.
