[Rejected] SE-0027 Expose code unit initializers on String

(Douglas Gregor) #1

The review of SE-0027 "Expose code unit initializers on String” ran from February 11…16, 2016. The proposal has been rejected.


At this point, the core team feels that we have not fully explored the design space here, and that known alternatives (e.g., making the UTF-16 and UTF-32 views of a String mutable collections) might provide a better long-term solution. Moreover, the String type itself is undergoing a significant re-evaluation, so the core team feels that improvements to String should be delayed until the newer design is better understood.
