Even if Foundation doesn't adopt the, they would be a great complement for those of us who would prefer the lighter syntax and are willing to use our own wrapper.
I think the limiting factor here is not reviewing the proposal, but implementing it. If someone comes up with a prototype implementation it would increase the odds of the proposal being accepted.
A big part of this would just be untangling a pile of code in SILGen for emitting function call arguments and applying them. Right now there’s too much duplication between method calls and property access and subscripts. I need to do some work in this area to implement default arguments for subscripts; I think this can be accomplished through some refactoring and deleting of code. I haven’t thought about throwing properties and subscripts but I imagine it would be similar.
