I have renamed the document - new link is

https://github.com/cacruden/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0023-Pattern-Matching-Partial-Function.md <https://github.com/cacruden/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0023-Pattern-Matching-Partial-Function.md>

I have initiated a pull request…. I think the proposal is sufficient to get to the review stage (which is a week)… so the haggling on the small stuff will likely happen again at that time anyway.

Of course my views may be corrupted by being too close to the proposal :p

I believe if we hold the reader's attention just long enough for them to understand what we're talking about, they'll be onboard. Once they're hooked, we have our second document with the list of examples.
