I want to keep repeating this statement from Jonathan until someone
actually pays attention to it. The impedance mismatch between the access
levels is not simply programmer flavor. It  taints the basic nature of
learning Swift, and learning those different styles.

I want to be open to other programming styles, and would be interested
in using the one that so desperately "needs" scope private as people on
this thread claim. Except I'm turned off it immediately by having to
accommodate this jagged, ugly, bleeding edge of the language.
