> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1, I like the syntax and think it can clean up some parser ambiguities.
Today, there are several formats using angle brackets:
- a parameter declaration as an ordered dictionary of names to type or type-decensent restrictions (or Any if not specified)
- an argument declaration as an ordered list of concrete types
- an unordered list of required protocol conformances
Eliminating the where clause sometimes available in parameter declarations simplifies understanding the generic syntaxes.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes, although I don’t know how it evaluates against possible future syntax for the generics manifesto feature lists
> * 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?
