/**
 * # mozilla::Variant
 *
 * A variant / tagged union / heterogenous disjoint union / sum-type template
 * class. Similar in concept to (but not derived from) `boost::variant`.
 *
 * Sometimes, you may wish to use a C union with non-POD types. However, this is
 * forbidden in C++ because it is not clear which type in the union should have
 * its constructor and destructor run on creation and deletion
 * respectively. This is the problem that `mozilla::Variant` solves.
 *
 * ## Usage
 *
 * A `mozilla::Variant` instance is constructed (via move or copy) from one of
 * its variant types (ignoring const and references). It does *not* support
 * construction from subclasses of variant types or types that coerce to one of
 * the variant types.
 *
 *     Variant<char, uint32_t> v1('a');
 *     Variant<UniquePtr<A>, B, C> v2(MakeUnique<A>());
 *
 * All access to the contained value goes through type-safe accessors.
 *
 *     void
 *     Foo(Variant<A, B, C> v)
 *     {
 *       if (v.is<A>()) {
 *         A& ref = v.as<A>();
 *         ...
 *       } else {
 *         ...
 *       }
 *     }
 *
 * Attempting to use the contained value as type `T1` when the `Variant`
 * instance contains a value of type `T2` causes an assertion failure.
 *
 *     A a;
 *     Variant<A, B, C> v(a);
 *     v.as<B>(); // <--- Assertion failure!
 *
 * Trying to use a `Variant<Ts...>` instance as some type `U` that is not a
 * member of the set of `Ts...` is a compiler error.
 *
 *     A a;
 *     Variant<A, B, C> v(a);
 *     v.as<SomeRandomType>(); // <--- Compiler error!
 *
 * Additionally, you can turn a `Variant` that `is<T>` into a `T` by moving it
 * out of the containing `Variant` instance with the `extract<T>` method:
 *
 *     Variant<UniquePtr<A>, B, C> v(MakeUnique<A>());
 *     auto ptr = v.extract<UniquePtr<A>>();
 *
 * Finally, you can exhaustively match on the contained variant and branch into
 * different code paths depending which type is contained. This is preferred to
 * manually checking every variant type T with is<T>() because it provides
 * compile-time checking that you handled every type, rather than runtime
 * assertion failures.
 *
 *     // Bad!
 *     char* foo(Variant<A, B, C, D>& v) {
 *       if (v.is<A>()) {
 *         return ...;
 *       } else if (v.is<B>()) {
 *         return ...;
 *       } else {
 *         return doSomething(v.as<C>()); // Forgot about case D!
 *       }
 *     }
 *
 *     // Good!
 *     struct FooMatcher
 *     {
 *       using ReturnType = char*;
 *       ReturnType match(A& a) { ... }
 *       ReturnType match(B& b) { ... }
 *       ReturnType match(C& c) { ... }
 *       ReturnType match(D& d) { ... } // Compile-time error to forget D!
 *     }
 *     char* foo(Variant<A, B, C, D>& v) {
 *       return v.match(FooMatcher());
 *     }
 *
 * ## Examples
 *
 * A tree is either an empty leaf, or a node with a value and two children:
 *
 *     struct Leaf { };
 *
 *     template<typename T>
 *     struct Node
 *     {
 *       T value;
 *       Tree<T>* left;
 *       Tree<T>* right;
 *     };
 *
 *     template<typename T>
 *     using Tree = Variant<Leaf, Node<T>>;
 *
 * A copy-on-write string is either a non-owning reference to some existing
 * string, or an owning reference to our copy:
 *
 *     class CopyOnWriteString
 *     {
 *       Variant<const char*, UniquePtr<char[]>> string;
 *
 *       ...
 *     };
