And given that permanently deleting something from __preview__ would be
a big deal (deciding it didn't make the grade and should never
graduate), the criteria shouldn't be much less strict than for adopting
a package into the standard library.
i.e. once something gets into __preview__ people are going to assume it
will graduate at some point - __preview__ is a place for apis to
stabilise and mature, not a place for dubious libraries that we may or
may not want in the standard library at some point.
May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
