      Description

      We are working to revise the design of String for Swift 4. This includes a variety of changes, including:

      https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-4003 Optimize the representation of String
      https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-4004 Create a shim to ICU
      https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-4006 Enable String to store Latin1 characters with 8-bit encoding
      https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-4007 Implement Small String optimization

      I am filing this issue to track the overall effort for the purpose of ABI stability.
