I have created a ticket abut this problem:
Frankly, I do not know how to implement it in a portable way (considering
older compilers) without type trait boost::is_constructible. I am currently
blocked on it:

As an aside, the "prevent_binding" stuff should probably be expressed as a

About this remark, I am not sure. I understand that you want the
constructors to be SFINAE-friendly, but at the same time I would loose the
opportunity to convey a text message to the user-programmers, as to what
the problem is. Now I do it with the static_assert.

I wish I had the feature "delete for a reason"

Optional::Optional(R&&r) = delete("because it would cause...");
