[swift-evolution-announce] [Review] SE-0013 Remove Partial Application of Non-Final Super Methods


(Lily Ballard) #1

* What is your evaluation of the proposal?

+1

* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a
  change to Swift?

Yes.

* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?

It doesn't really fit with Swift 2.x since it explicitly disallows
currying of a particular type of function call, but it does fit with
Swift 3.0, and that's kind of the whole point.

* How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick
  reading, or an in-depth study?

A quick reading.

Partial application of calls to super seems like an extremely niche use-
case, and one that can be trivially worked around by writing a local
closure, so it seems like a good tradeoff.
