This is much needed. For maximum performance, is there a reason why options on reference types cannot be just syntactic sugar on `null`? By that I mean that for both `T` and `T option` the underlying type is just `T`, and matching on option is compiled to `if opt = null then..;else..`.Arbil supported this idea ·
