I'm submitting a separate update to the accepted setline proposal. It does not seem to fit into the 0039 write-up. The pull request for 0039 is

I'm confused about setline. Will it be `setLine` or `sourceLocation`? 

Accepted form and Modified design


After discussing how to rationalize naming and capitalization of identifiers in the “#” namespace, the core Swift team has adopted a lower camel case <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CamelCase> model for identifiers. 

The accepted form will use lower camel case either as #setLine or #sourceLocation. 


The syntax for #setLine/#sourceLocation is inconsistent with the other # directives in that it doesn’t use parentheses. After discussion, the core team will adjust the call to use parentheses and comma-separated colon-delimited argument and value pairs. 

The final syntax will be either 

#setLine(file: "foo", line: 42) // or
#sourceLocation(file: "foo", line: 42) 

Please let me know and I'll modify and submit a PR

As was brought up on another thread, the syntax for #setline is inconsistent with the other # directives because it doesn’t use parentheses.  The core team discussed this a bit and recommends resyntaxing #setline to:
