> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?


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

Probably, although I don’t think it’s an essential change.

I do believe strongly that “dynamicType” is better than “typeof", for the reason explained in the proposal: It is unclear whether it’s the static or dynamic type.

> 	* 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?

ObjC, but I don’t think it compares well

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

Read the proposal and some of the previous discussion.
