I forgot the most important part.  The most important aspect of evaluating something new is to expose it to ridiculously smart people, to see what they think.  

For best effect, they should come from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and be willing to share their thoughts in a clear and direct way.  This is one of the biggest benefits of all of swift being open source - public design and open debate directly leads to a better programming language.
