[swift-evolution] Swift Closure still inconsistent -- tuple names need to be in curly brackets, single parameter needs to be in parentheses

The core team designed swift blocks to range from concise to verbose. Which
one you use depends on your needs.

If you want to write parenthesis then by all means write parenthesis; no
one is stopping you.

I would rather keep the block syntax as it is so that everyone can choose
the style that matches their needs.
