[swift-evolution-announce] [Review #2] SE-0117: Default classes to be non-subclassable publicly


(John Randolph) #1

- infinity for this proposal.

If adopted, it will mean that whenever I want to extend a class implemented by a short-sighted developer, I’ll have to resort to wrappers and classes that own instances of the lobotomized class, etc, etc.

java.lang.string is final. I will never forgive Gosling for that.

I believe this is not in discussion anymore. We're just debating some
specifics now.
