/*
 * MaybeOneOf<T1, T2> is like Maybe, but it supports constructing either T1
 * or T2. When a MaybeOneOf<T1, T2> is constructed, it is |empty()|, i.e.,
 * no value has been constructed and no destructor will be called when the
 * MaybeOneOf<T1, T2> is destroyed. Upon calling |construct<T1>()| or
 * |construct<T2>()|, a T1 or T2 object will be constructed with the given
 * arguments and that object will be destroyed when the owning MaybeOneOf is
 * destroyed.
 *
 * Because MaybeOneOf must be aligned suitable to hold any value stored within
 * it, and because |alignas| requirements don't affect platform ABI with respect
 * to how parameters are laid out in memory, MaybeOneOf can't be used as the
 * type of a function parameter.  Pass MaybeOneOf to functions by pointer or
 * reference instead.
