a) I've read your post
b) I see your point that the serialization of optional doesn't handle types
without default constructors
c) I agree that it should be fixed.
d) don't like the way you fixed it. I'm sure should work but I don't like
the usage of the heap. For a better way to do this take a look at
collections_load_imp.hpp which adderss this problem in a different context.

Its too late to fixe for 1.33.
