I see. `optional_front` usage is following:

if (optional<T> x = r | optional_front()) {
  std::cout << x.get() << std::endl;

If `front` return signle range, the usage is following:

for (T x : x | front) {
  std::cout << x << std::endl;

If `front` is error, the return value is empty range.
I think single range approach is better. However, I think now `front` and
`optional_front` is useful.

I would like to add `optional_front` and `front_range`.
