# What is your evaluation of the proposal?
I support it.
# Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
One great advantage of being able to name a selector from a method is that tools can tell that some method from some class is being used as a callback. It can't tell that just from a selector string. This will be useful for refactoring tools.
I think that selectors are going to die a very slow death, so we might as well have decent support for them.
# 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?
Selectors are pretty unique to Objective-C.
# How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
I read the proposal and was already convinced. I followed a little bit of discussion and everything looked good.
