I humbly disagree. I think that if there's no direct assignment from T,
then there should also be no direct assignment from none (these two are
symmetric, as they are the two possible options for the optional's
content), and the only way to do it is by using reset()/clear(), or copy
assignment from an empty optional. If there is direct T assignment, on
the other hand, then none assignment should follow.
