> * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
- I believe the default/generic "printing" initializer is not commonly
used (at least, not on purpose).
- The new argument label clearly indicates what the initializer does.
I would also submit for consideration "*init(describing:)*", to match the
CustomStringConvertible ".description" property which it invokes.
> * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a
> change to Swift?
Yes: accidental use of the initializer can be harmful, and is currently
> * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes, it fits well with the API guidelines.
> * 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?
A quick reading.
