Hi All,

A couple of weeks ago we started to notice that we had some poorly-named
closure parameters and argument labels in the standard library, so we
did a complete audit of the standard library's APIs and came up with a
preliminary proposal for changes, which we applied in a branch and you
can review in https://github.com/apple/swift/pull/2981.  Let's please
carry on further discussion here rather than in the pull request, though.

I'll be submitting a formal proposal for review this week but wanted to
give people a chance to weigh in on some of the changes first.  I view
this step as a necessary one before taking up Patrick Pijnappel's
proposal for renaming functional algorithms:
