Allow Array extensions with alternative syntax

Hello everyone,

currently it is only possible to extend Arrays or Dictionarys with a specific Element type like this:

extension Array where Element == Int {}

In my opinion it looks much cleaner, if we could write

extension [Int] {}

I think this shouldn't be too hard to implement, it could be converted to the old syntax at compile-time.

what are your thoughts?

This is pure syntax sugar pitch which probably won't have much priority at the moment or someone from the community is willing to fully tackle the implementation and a review process of a proposal.

Other than that, this came up recently and in the past, so I think it's fair to say that we don't have to fragment the forums any further and simply jump into recent conversation instead. ;)


Oh okay I didn't see this conversation. Maybe I didn't look good enough :D
