We ought to be careful about claiming names, especially short ones, in the
boost namespace which might be better used for other things. I actually like
'nil' a bit better than 'none' in this respect. I guess "empty" isn't such a
good name in that case, either. I am ambivalent about this. I'm not sure
it's worth wasting time quibbling over this name, and perhaps nil was the
best name we could have after all.
