* What is your evaluation of the proposal?


* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change
to Swift?

Yes. (To be clear, I think it's important, but not urgent.)

* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?

Yes; it seems consistent with other String APIs.

* If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature,
how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

N/A; Swift's String types put all others to shame ;-)

* How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading,
or an in-depth study?

I read through the proposal quickly. I mostly looked at the proposed API,
and in comparison to the existing String APIs, I feel this is a logical &
useful addition to the standard library.

Question: Why doesn't this proposal also include UTF8View and UTF16View?
