> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
I like it. The current positioning made sense when we still had `var` in that slot, but now that we don't, having it decorate the type seems better.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
It's not a major problem, but fixing it isn't a major problem either.
> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes. I can see a few nice directions we can go with this.
> * If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
For some reason, in my experience inout parameters are usually either built from a different, often very advanced, language feature (like references or pointers), or their syntax is idiosyncratic and unprincipled. It's nice to see Swift attempting to do something rational here.
> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
A quick reading, nothing special.
