My bad, I thought we're talking about an API-exposed function. But if
that's not the case, then it's even
less necessary to bother with conditionally using <compare>'s types,
and std::optional seems fine.
The functionality built on top of it can convert the optional into a
weak_ordering, as an optional
feature, rather than having the underlying private utility function
have multiple definitions or overloads
or whatever.
