A big +1 from me. It doesn't create any incompatibilities. Old code will behave the same as before. autoreleasepool works more like @autoreleasepool from Objective-C now.

The problem is not very big, but since the change doesn't introduce any incompatibilities, I'd say: Yes

Well, Objective-C has the @autoreleasepool. I think the only reason why it is available in Swift too, is because Swift is normally used on top of the Objective-C runtime. Swift's autoreleasepool will behave more like the original @autoreleasepool if this proposal is implemented. Implementing the proposal feels more like a bugfix to me.

I read the proposal.
