Interesting — but I don’t think framework APIs are necessarily representative of Swift usage at large. I suspect most Swift being done today is in application contexts. And, I don’t have the exact numbers, but when I played around with extracting method signatures from my projects, it seemed like the *majority* of methods should continue to be `func foo(bar: T)`, not `func foo(bar bar: T)`.
