We (Swift) moved the S3 compatibiliy middleware out of core swift for
quite some in its own github repository[1] 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.
