> 	• What is your evaluation of the proposal?

This is consistent with removing curried functions from Swift, and hence I'm in favor of it; consistency is good.

> 	• 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?


> 	• If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?

Well, it feels like many modern languages are going the opposite direction; that is, incorporating more functional programming. I think Swift's approach is more programmatic though.

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

Read thoroughly.
