> • What is your evaluation of the proposal?
+∞ - 1 (for no extension synthesis)
> • Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?
Most certainly. This is a major pain point, especially for structs with many members.
> • Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Yes, though I don’t particularly care about compiler magic like some, especially in such a useful case.
> • If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
I believe Scala with synthesize the equivalent of Equatable conformance for class cases, and I’ve used Mantle in Objective-C, which did the same dynamically for types which inherited from the right types.
> • How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?
Studied it when originally proposed, glanced for a rearview.
