Constants no longer require immediate initialization

Available from Swift 1.2

Paul Hudson      @twostraws

Constants may be set only once, but Swift 1.2 allows us to create constants without initializing them immediately. For example:

let username: String

if authenticated {
    username = fetchUsername()
} else {
    username = "Anonymous"
}
