I won't give up so easity ;)
I rather give up direct value assignment which seems to be the real root of
the unexpected semantics.
I suppose anyone will expect _this_ to rebind:
o = optional<int&>(v);
And that assignment alone is all that is really needed. The other is just
sugar for that.

But I think we can still save the wale, I mean, the reference.
