> 	• What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I think this change is overly fussy, but not the end of the world.

I enjoy this convenience, but I can live without it. I hope that, when the dust settles from all our parameter changes, we can reintroduce it in some form.

> 	• Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

It seems insignificant to me, but I support small syntax clean-ups in general.

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

Arguably it does, at least for the current parameter-handling retrenchment.

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


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

Participated in previous discussion.
