review of "SE-163: String Revision: Collection Conformance, C Interop,
What is your evaluation of the proposal?
• Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to
Yes. It is much more consistent to think of a String as a Collection of
Characters and change to copying when taking a sub-string is welcome.
• Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes. It will make String code easier to follow.
• If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how
do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
Yes Java. Change to copying sub-strings worked well.
• How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading,
or an in-depth study?
Read the proposal and familiar with similar issues in Java
