Remember, that a one of the design goals of Swift was to NOT 
continue the 'continuity with C'. This is a very, very, very 
different goal to D.

Personally, I've never liked ++ and -- (and I have for many 
years, wrote them out the way Swift now requires.).

So for me, Swift does exactly what I want here ;-)

Chris Lattner outlines the reasons for removing it in Swift 3.0
