  I am very much in favor of such a library. I've
written this same library and have found it useful in
several applications I've written.

  I have one suggestion though. I suggest calling the
class maybe instead of optional. There are two
reasons for this.

1. This idiom is widely used in other languages
(haskell comes to mind) calling it maybe.

2. Maybe well describes the idea that this particular
variable might have a value. As opposed to optional
arguments to a function. It is also shorter and more
to the point IMO.
