[swift-evolution] TrigonometricFloatingPoint/MathFloatingPoint protocol?

I’ve noticed from this and older threads that everyone agrees on what core
libraries we want, but they never actually get built. Perennial requests
seem to be

- RNG and cryptography library (CryptoSwift could be a good base for this)
- Generic Math library/Vector library
- Basic data structures (Tree, Balanced Tree, Heap, Queue, SkipList,
graphs, etc)
- Modern DateTime library
- Modern String processing toolkit
- 2D Graphics library (similar to cairo)
- Windowing/UI library

I think David Turnbull tried to get something like this started years back
but it fizzled out pretty quick, probably because the Swift foss community
was much smaller back then. Time to try again?
