> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I was skeptical of this until a week or two ago, when I had some code where I ended up commenting out certain parameters. Removing the now-trailing commas was an inconvenience. So, +1 from me.

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

It's a minor issue, but it's a minor fix too.

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

Yes; this brings function call syntax in line with other comma-separated lists.

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

I've used a number of languages like this and it does come in handy occasionally.

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

Quick reading, plus participation in previous discussion (where I took the other side).
