> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

1) I think eliminating intervals increases consistency and reduces confusion.

2) I really like the fact that this will make in-place index traversal methods public. It will reduce the amount of boilerplate for developers implementing new collections.

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


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

Most modern languages provide a sophisticated library supporting collections. I think this proposal is moving the Swift Foundation in the direction of the C++ STL and Boost libraries.

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