Good +1

It's not quite clear if `swift run --configuration release` runs the release build, but I'll assume it's true.

The considered alternative of symlinking to the latest build folder looks like an opportunity for bugs, as most stateful command-line interfaces: I'm not in favor for it.
> Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Yes, since the inner layout of the build folder is about to depend on the platform. 
> Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
> If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
`swift run` has a taste of scripting language :-)
> How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
A read of the proposal.
