> 	* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

+1 The protocols are well thought out and make total sense to me. I only have a miner gripe with the naming of:

func nthWord(n: Int) -> UInt

Which reads very weird. Why not:

func word(at: Int) -> UInt

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

Yes, generic algorithms using integers were difficult to write. This is definitely needed for Swift 3.

> 	* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?

It follows the logic behind the floating-point protocols.

> 	* If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?


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

A good read.
