> Hello Swift community,

>         https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0089-rename-string-reflection-init.md
>         * What is your evaluation of the proposal?

As described in the proposal, it makes sense. I never faced the issue
myself but agree to the change. I'd also go with Jacob's version
'init(describing:)' since there is no guarantee the resulting string
will be printed but will surely describe the object used as argument.

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

As outlined by the proposal, yes.

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


>         * 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.
