Oh, we completely agree.. it's just that I didn't get around to changing
things, and didn't actually notice until after I posted. There's a newer
(though still in work) version available here:

Christopher is currently looking into a way to fix alignment issues (I
looked at Optional, and it turns out it has the advantage of knowing
beforehand the type it is to store, whereas any can't know that in advance),
so we'll probably have a better version some time later today.

Could be, we'll see how changes currently in work can be fit into any's
current implementation.
