> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I like it quite a bit.  

It uses very readable syntax and covers most cases (I’m glad to see the backticks are gone).  Requiring a typing context for disambiguation when the labels are not sufficient seems like a reasonable approach.

I would really like to see a solution for getter/setters in Swift 3 but agree that lenses are the right approach to that and it would be an independent proposal.  

I agree that the general partial application syntax is unnecessary.  It might be nice to have something a bit cleaner than $0 for shorthand in closures someday and _ might work for that, however it is an orthogonal topic.

I read both drafts of the proposal and followed the discussion on the list.
