What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. Especially for forcing the alias side of the declaration to explicitly keep track of type constraints.
Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Yes. Previously, one could "work around" this by declaring a 0-case generic enum with associated type "projections". I'm glad to see that pattern find a formal place in the language.
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?
This proposal brings Swift up to par with languages that allow any kind of "alias"ing of types, whether that be C++ or Haskell [in a cleaner way than the former].
How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
In-depth study. I actually took a crack at an implementation a while ago!
