What I meant is to change variant so as to treat boost::empty specially and,
for instance, never visit it.

Now, I do remember that this was originially a choice but it turned out that
instructing variant to have special knowldege of such a singular type was
very complex. I'm just suggesting that however complex it might be, seems to
solve some of this issues.
