> I don't disagree with the points you make.  But one can argue that this is a good thing.  It calls attention to code that requires extra attention and care.  In some ways this is similar to 'UnsafeMutablePointer<T>' vs '*T'.  Verbosity was a deliberate choice in that case.

You know...rather than introducing a new type like MemoryLayout, would it make sense to do this with static properties on UnsafePointer?


If you need this information, 90% of the time you're probably using UnsafePointer or one of its friends, right?
