Think "farm league for SE" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm_team <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm_team>). It would lower the burden on SE but provide a way forward to discuss and develop ideas within the framework of coherent language design.


Not even just for development… a standard repository for “substandard” library(s) would be a great for commonly used types that aren’t quite commonly used enough to include in stdlib, and IMHO, could really help Swift’s ecosystem (I’m not claiming that it’s poor now or anything, but there’s nothing wrong with making it the best we can).
