> What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1, like others I would love to have this feature available today, as my code is currently littered with complicated constraints on types that could be much more elegantly handled by constraints on the associated types themselves.

> Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Definitely, this seems like an important next step for Swift's support of generics and constraints.

> Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes, absolutely.

> How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
I've read through it fairly quickly, but I feel I already have a pretty good grasp of what the feature entails as it solves a problem I encounter often!
