<div dir="ltr">I’ve revised the proposal based on what I learned from trying to implement these changes.

leaving them to be overhauled at a later date, in a separate proposal.
Instead, this version of the proposal leverages those existing methods
to inform a more compact API design which has less surface area, and is
more future-proof since it obviates the need to design and add another
(redundant) set of protocol-oriented pointer APIs later.</i></div></div></div><div class="gmail_extra"><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Tue, Aug 8, 2017 at 12:52 PM, Taylor Swift <span dir="ltr"><<a href="mailto:email@example.com" target="_blank">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>></span> wrote:<br><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"><div dir="ltr">Since Swift 5 just got opened up for proposals, SE-184 Improved Pointers is ready for community review, and I encourage everyone to look it over and provide feedback.
