>         * What is your evaluation of the proposal?
-1, we are introducing confusion between WHAT is returned and IF it returns

> change to Swift?
the assumption that the attribute was superfluous was wrong, for clarity
reasons. So there is no significant problem addressed

>         * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
This proposal feels like someone wants to remove '@' from attributes: this
causes confusion. I may have defined a class with name NoReturn for a
different use.

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