[swift-evolution] [Review] SE-0104: Protocol-oriented integers

I've read the proposal and I've been following the conversation for some days now.
I don't have anything else to add to the concerns that have already been discussed, but I would like to reiterate on the fact that having the ,absoluteValue, property but without substituting 'abs' will induce a lot of programers to use it anyway and make mistakes.
That's my only concern with it, the rest looks awesome. It is really amazing to see the power of protocols.
Thanks for the proposal 👍🏻
