>> I understand how @noescape works, and some of its benefits, I *think*, but if I am correct, it almost seems like it should be added automatically to my closure definitions until it becomes clear that the closure has to escape its context, much like I tend to declare variables as `let` until it becomes clear I need a `var`. 
> IIRC, there is a current proposal to change the language in exactly that way — i.e. to have noescape be the default and use an attribute like “@escapes” to declare that a closure can be stored by the callee and called later.
