>    * What is your evaluation of the proposal?

+1.  IIRC this wasn't always required and I was bummed when the requirement was introduced.  Good riddance.  That said, I wouldn't mind if .self was kept as an alternative as Brent has requested.

Similar response as Brent with regards to Ruby.

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

Followed the discussion and read the proposal.
