swift release 1.4.5


It's time again for a swift release. We have cut the swift 1.4.5 release and it's headed to QA. We expect it to be validated by the end of this week and it should land for public use early next week.

Below is the changelog for this release. The highlights are the swift-orphans and swift-oldies tools and the fix to swift-init to support swift-object-expirer.
