I guess that is the price to pay for stability… I personally am quite sad that
Swift reached that phase already.
But who knows — maybe after some years of collecting legacy, this might be
discussed again in a cleanup release of Swift.
Still, I think the current situation is a pity, as everyone seems to agree that
we ended up with a flawed solution for access control :-(
