The formal review of Fernando Cacciola's Optional library begins today and
runs until the end of Wednesday, December 18.

The Optional library provides a class template "optional<T>" that either
contains a value of type "T" or contains no value (i.e., having a value is
optional). It is useful, for example, as the return type of functions that
may or may not return a value, depending on their inputs.

The Optional library can be downloaded from the Boost files section:

Please state in review comments whether or not you believe that the library
should be accepted into Boost. Further guidelines for writing reviews can be
found here:

        Thank you,
        Doug Gregor (Optional (but not uninitialized) review manager)
