Remove special-case initializers/constructors from Swift

Classification:Other Bug Reproducible:NA
Constructors in Java and C++ are language features that seem like a good idea initially, but turn out to be less than useful in practice, leading to unexpected gotchas, complexity and ultimately use of the "Factory Pattern".   Use normal methods / message instead.

"We are not going to do this.  The uniform construction syntax is fundamental to the Swift model."
