Could you please publish it on Github? It is a bit difficult to read such
long posts in mailing lists.
1) I wouldn't like if ability to get function by name was removed.
Granted, it doesn't always work, but when it does, it's nice and concise.
2) SE-0066 and removal of tuple splat behaviour are caused by the fact that
Swift function argument lists are not tuples.
Inout, @noescape and others make sense only in function types.
(Int, Int) -> Int will be a function that takes two Ints
((Int, Int)) -> Int will be a function that takes one tuple
(((Int, Int))) -> Int will be the same as ((Int, Int)) -> Int
3) Methods will be uncurried when used as closures.
[Int].map as ([Int], @noescape (Int) -> Int) -> [Int]
