> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. I'm pleased to see an important foundational algorithm added to the standard library.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Yes. We should have a standard, shared implementation of as many generally useful algorithms as possible, especially those whose implementation is no trivial.
> * 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?
As noted in the proposal, it is inspired by STL, which is a very good source of inspiration for generic algorithms.
> * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Quick read of the specific details of the proposal, informed by general familiarity with generic programming and the rotate algorithm.
