We (Swift) moved the S3 compatibiliy middleware out of core swift for
quite some in its own github repository maintained by fujita and so
far this has been working well for us, since most of the Swift core
don't know (or care I guess) about S3 API and fujita does this
ensuring it works.
I personally don't see an advantage of having to support S3 (it's
basically a constant screenscraping) but like monty said I care much
more about facilitating migration for our users.
