I'm still not sure I understand what are you trying to do, but it looks
like you want optional with in-place construction (which bypasses the copy).
In this case, I recently explored something which would look like:

optional<Window> opt( in_place<Window>(point(0,0),point(10,10)));

here, in_place() is used to forward T's ctor argument to optional<> so that
T is effectively constructed in-place right within the aligned storage.

Is this what you want?
