>>    * What is your evaluation of the proposal?

>>    * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Definitely. This is very confusing to have typealias mean two different things.

>>    * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes. While it does add something, it simplifies and removes confusion.

>>    * If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I haven't used similar features in other languages.

>>    * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Read the review, run into the problem myself, and followed the discussion here.
