> I agree.  The major motivation from my side isn’t the code size reduction, it is that we’ll have a better and brighter future with more clarity and less weird cruft left over - like the “DictionaryLiteral” type that sparked this whole thread.  Have you looked at it?  It’s crazy. :-)


One of the things that I like about Swift (vis-à-vis C++, Java, JavaScript etc) is that the Core team is not afraid to fix ‘historical mistakes’.
I think, Chris’ idea of a separate unstable/deprecated dylib provides an excellent platform for this practice to continue after ABI stability.
