This proposal is starting to go around in circles, and now re-includes various parts of the first version of this proposal which I objected to in that review thread on grounds of lack of clarity.

I don’t think this is making the language better at this point, it feels like this is being rushed to get “something in for Swift 3 at all costs.”

I have no objection to the fundamental concept of the proposal, but this should not come at the cost of the language, just on the grounds of the timeline. I think it would be better for this to be re-proposed without the rush for future versions of Swift - especially since it’s “additive.”
