> • What is your evaluation of the proposal?
I think it is a very important feature to enable working with more complicated generic types while maintaining readability.
I do not agree with the decision not to support additional constraints on the generic type. I do have the strong feeling that this would be useful. At the moment it is not more than a feeling, though, without a compelling example, and as it can easily be added later I'm fine with a first implementation as proposed.
> • 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?
Haskell has generic typealiases which are quite commonly used.
> • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
A quick reading.
