> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

I commented earlier, but didn't actually review.

I'm in favor of this change *if* we are very sure that the syntax will not change again, even if `lazy` is reimplemented as a property behavior. If we are *not* sure of this, however, then I think it should stay as it is now, because the advantages of `@lazy` over `lazy` are *very* minor and we don't want change fatigue to set in.

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

These kinds of consistency issues are one of the things we're trying to clean up, so yes.

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

Yes...if, and *only* if, this change will align it with the final name and spelling of the feature. 

> 	* 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?

Quick reading or two, plus lots of discussion on property behaviors.
