> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
I like this proposal. I think it adds clarity to the language. Especially after the change from 'associated' to 'associatedtype'.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Yes. It isn't a huge issue for me but has causes confusion for some. A distinct keyword improving clarity is worth the change.
> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
> * If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I am familiar with several. This proposal is different than anything I've see, but in a good way.
> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
I read the proposal, followed the discussion, and thought about the tradeoffs.
