Assuming that this is what we will have to do, it would be a useful exploration to identify sensible idioms and guidelines for how to name these classes.  Are these new ad-hoc names (Opt for the new Optional), or a mechanically derived scheme such as Optional.Inline?  Finding a less objectionable scheme here can go a long way to mitigating the sadness of having to give these things new names.
