Subject: [boost] optional<optional<T>>

I'm defining an "optional" type for D's standard library modeled
similarly to Boost.optional. An interesting question came up - should
optional<optional<T>> fold itself into optional<T>, or is "double
optional" an interesting concept of its own?

I thought I'd ask here because by now there's a significant body of
experience with optional<T>. I perused the online documentation and the
forum and couldn't find information about that specific detail.
