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 :-(
