Excellently written proposal, sensible motivation.
Only nit is that `with` is not required and is better off removed, IMO.
* "swap a and b" and "swap a with b" are equivalent statements
* there's no reason to use one phrasing for the free function and another
with this method; the difference is in taking indices vs. inout values, but
the relationship between a and b is preserved
* the former spelling emphasizes the symmetry of the operation, which I
believe is in line with API naming guidelines on labels
* the former spelling is also terser
