I’m sympathetic to the elimination of UnsafePointer<Void> as general shorthand for an arbitrary pointer, but I lose the plot of this very long proposal. It seems to me that this increases API surface, yet everything I could do before, I could still do; it just involves more typing. What exactly does this make better?
