> • What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+1. I have run into problems with the current behavior a few times. This proposal brings the behavior in-line with what I believe is best.
> • Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
> • Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes. It continues the trend of refining the behavior of Objetive-C and Cocoa bridging.
> • If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I have not worked in a language with the kind of first-class bridging Swift has.
> • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
I was the author of SE-0080 and wanted to include similar provisions in that proposal early on so I think it’s fair to say an in-depth study. I’m happy to see the Foundation side of this topic receiving attention.
