>         * What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I am in favour of this proposal. It will solve an important problem faced
by swiftpm users.

>         * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a

Yes, system modules often require extra flags and search paths are platform
dependent. A lot of users have reported bugs in jira about this.

>         * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of the
> Swift Package Manager?

Yes, it will improve the functionality of swiftpm

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

I implemented the first draft of proposal and tried using GTK3 library on
OSX and Ubuntu, It works out really nice. More info about the experiment :
