> What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1.  It seems like this operator will be occasionally useful, and won’t be in anyone’s way if they don’t need it.

> Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

> Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
More or less.  I don’t think the meaning will be obvious to a beginner, but neither are most operators, so it still seems fine.

> 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 the equivalent in ruby, and it came in handy.

> How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
A quick read.
