+1, although I don't think the functions should be marked with
@discardableResult. The partition method is hardly useful if you don't know
where the partition index is.

Somewhat. This API isn't commonly used (I've never used it), but APIs in
the standard library deserve to make sense and be useful :-)

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

Yes, the new API seems to feel "Swifty", and conform to the API design

>         * 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?

Brief reading of the proposal and a look at the existing API. I've never
used this API in Swift.
