> The goal of the review process is to improve the proposal under review
> through constructive criticism and, eventually, determine the direction
> of Swift. When writing your review, here are some questions you might
> want to answer in your review:
> • What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. Currently I create the symlinks manually, but that runs into
issues; for example when trying to update a changed dependency graph.
I'm also interested in how SwiftPM would handle the situation that
Derrick Ho sketches.

> • Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
> • If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar

Very similar to what pip (python) offers. It's a feature that I've used a lot.
> • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick
> reading, or an in-depth study?
