+1. I was involved in some of the earlier discussions and discussed the pros and cons of each way, tossed and turned, and to be honest, like “public vs open” I think this comes out to “it’s the best compromise”.
We need to handle additional cases safely, and people need to think carefully as it will be a compatibility issue to leave new enum cases unhandled. This proposal sums this up well.

Yes. This is an important change.
> Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
Feel? Not 100%, but this is a compromise for compatibility. Direction? Yes. It is in a direction to allow ABI compatibility, so yes.

I’ve dealt with not handling extra cases in Obj-C, and handling the compatibility issues with current Swift code.

Somewhere between a quick reading and a in-depth study. This was one of my bugbears, something I knew we needed to sort out and I’m glad Jordan picked it up. I was involved in the conversation, and churned through the issues there in the earlier discussions.
