• What is your evaluation of the proposal?
I’ve known about the tuple splat feature but have never used it in my code or seen a real need for it. Therefore, if removing can simplify the language and the compiler, I’m all for it.
• Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
I believe so.
• Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
It does fit well with a desire to start simplifying or removing features which are rarely used.
• If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I have used other functional languages which have that functionality, but I’ve always shed away from it because it made code harder to read.
• How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
I read the proposal in detail and read the discussion in the mailing list, so a fairly serious study.
