Following the returned for revision announcement for SE-0262, one of the bullet points to discuss was a new "Runtime" module in Swift, separate to the stdlib. I want to open discussion on what that might look like and what other features it might entail. The core team believes that a
demangle function would make for a "natural candidate" for such module, but Joe also mentioned that other functionality from the Swift runtime could be used for things like reflection. Could this module be where full reflection support would be implemented, or just some of the building blocks? What other "low-level" features could this potentially offer?
Another important question to consider: what would be a good name for this module? Kidding aside, it seemed implied that we could name this
Runtime, but considering potential other features, are there any other names that could fit the bill as well?
