It was simple enough. Instead of an "is an optional" use case it was
more of a "has an optional" use case, with the optional being a
one-time, factory initialized value. Worked pretty well. :+1: I even
managed to leverage the optional operator->() overload in order to
access the thing inside the optional post-initialization.
