* What is your evaluation of the proposal?
We should do the best to avoid source breaking change in Swift4.
https://github.com/ankurp/Dollar is used in so many projects.
I believe removing this might discourage them from using Swift.
* Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a
change to Swift?
* Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?
No. Also, I personally dislike symbol only identifier.
But IMO, we have to compromise this.
* How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick
reading, or an in-depth study?
