Does this mean that construction from T is also suggested to be removed?
I assume not...

Anyway, If I'm required to write

optional<T> o = x;
o = optional<T>(y);


optional<T> o = x;
o = make_optional(y);

then it should be considered that this generates an additional temporary
instance of y (of type T). Direct assignment from T doesn't suffer from
this. Working around this makes me write




which is completely different...
