I readily admit I am shaky about new C++11 stuff... even though it's
2014 outside... I've not had (cannot afford) any exposure to C++11 as I
am still stuck with C++03... well, at least for 2 more months... which
in the airline industry is more likely 6-12 months. :-(
Still I suspect some interfaces require to be Copy Constrictible. For
out_type value_or(FallbackType const& fallback) const
return good_ ? value_ : fallback;
Above "out_type" is returned by-value as "fallback" might be of
FallbackType -- potentially other than (by convertible to) TypeOut type.
std::string res = convert<std::string>::from(25, cnv).value_or("C string");
However, I do not immediately see if we can have "value_" destroyed by
"move". So, Copy Constructible... I think.
I'd expect that to be the same in tr1::optional... unless you figured
out how to work around that issue... or I simply do not understand how
clever it can be. I'll happily accept your lead on this issue.
