+1 I agree. Unwrapping in the functional signature is confusing for the user; many don’t realize that it puts the burden of checking on them. Non-optional function parameters make this explicit by preventing passing in Optional types, forcing the user to check, which they should be doing anyway.

That’s not quite what I meant. nil feels right to refer to an object-you can say “Foo is nil”, but you can’t really say that “Foo is none”, since while you can’t really use none as an adjective, as you can with nil. It’s really about what flows right-none is the opposite of some, but nil isn’t.

I'm curious about the use case for this. For tuples it's a positional argument; how does this apply to enum cases which shouldn't depend on their order? On Tue, Nov 22, 2016 at 05:43 Adrian Zubarev via swift-evolution < swift-evolution@swift.org> wrote: > Have we already discussed this somewhere?

If you're looking for a use case for tuple equality, I often pack a bunch of values in a tuple and check it with another, which makes it easy to compare a multiple values at once and perform something only if all of them are equal. On Sat, Oct 15, 2016 at 09:28 Haravikk via swift-evolution <

Well, you’re not allowed to compare optionals any more. You can try binding the value to an Int, so that it’s not an optional anymore: if let number = number { let result = number > 0 ? 1 : 2 } Either way, you’ll have to decide what you think should happen when number is nil. Saagar

Which begs the question: why would you want to do something like this? Creating a “random” Double from its full range of values is an odd thing to do, and the fact that it is non-uniform and has irregularities like infinity and signed zeros makes it likely that any such usage is probably done
