Got it, thanks :-)
But back to the other point
I think it would be nice the have an optional that could be used for
nice function arguments
(the posts between you and Gennadiy give reaons I hadn't though of)
I agree that it can be done using pointers and wrappers but so can the
return value, optional is a wrapper for this type of behaviour so having
a second wrapper for an almost identical purpose seems bad :-(
Would some sort of specialisation be possible ?
or a small wrapper class to allow the other syntax while leaving the
current (safer) version as default?
