#13438: Boost Config check for std::optional
 Reporter: Tony E Lewis <TonyELewis@…> | Owner: John Maddock
     Type: Feature Requests | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: config
  Version: Boost 1.66.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: boost,config,c++17,optional |
 Please can you add a check for the availability of C++17's
 `std::optional`. I think this would be really helpful because:
  * AFAIA, the major compilers all now have `optional` in `std::` (rather
 than in `std::experimental::`)
  * I get the impression that people are fast adopting `std::optional` as a
 standard part of their type vocabulary.
  * I know at least one other ticket (ticket:12175) that's declining to
 support `std::optional` until Boost Config offers this feature test.

 I'm not sure about Boost Config's policy about how it interacts with the
 feature testing macros] (which include one for `std::optional`). If you
 expect other libraries to use those feature tests directly, please can you
 point me to documentation for that policy that I can we can point other
 library devs to?

 Thanks very much.
