If this list taught me anything, that it is that there is an incredible diversity what people like or dislike ;-)

But would you really prefer that (wait a moment: String??? ;-) over
var list: [Int] = 1, 2, 3
or boring old
var list = [1, 2, 3]

I have to point out that the proposal never aimed to remove variadic call — it has even been suggested to allow them for any array (or other types that can be constructed from an array literal).
