> What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. I liked the idea of this protocol when Swift was first announced but it has become clear that it isn't a good fit for the language.
> Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
> Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Very much so.
> If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I have not used other languages with a protocol like this but I have used other languages with various kinds of "truthiness". This turns out to be a feature that is convenient most of the time but subtly problematic in ways that are confusing and troublesome. I was hopeful that Swift's more structured approach using a protocol might work out better but it didn't.
> How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
A quick read.
