> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. This is a very nice improvement for code that needs to work directly with pointers.
> * 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?
Very much so.
> * If you have you used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
It aligns well with languages that improve safety by explicitly modeling null.
> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Followed the discussion and read the proposal. I was very pleased to see Jordan propose this.
