[Proposal: https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0093-slice-base.md <https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0093-slice-base.md%5D>]
Hey, Max. For clarification, this isn’t adding anything to the requirements for slice types, correct? That is, the result type of 'subscript(_: Range)' has no additional requirements? (Why I ask: there would be plenty of implementations of slices that may not otherwise need a reference to the original collection.)
I’m vaguely uncomfortable with this because I feel like it’s violating some abstraction or allowing unsafe indexing, but of course that’s no more unsafe than with any other collection.
