You can break whatever you want.

But whatever the solution you come up with, remember that SE-0110 currently *degrades* the quality of code written by Swift programmers. It can be argued that SE-0110 is a blatant *regression*. Maybe not as bad as the initial introduction of fileprivate, but something which is pretty bad, though.

It would be nice if some responsible language designer would at least *agree* that there is a problem.
