unpacked-maybe-text: optional text that unpacks well

[ bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library provides a specialization of `Maybe ShortText`. When this is an unpacked field of data constructor, this will result in fewer indirections and fewer allocations. This is a micro-optimization, so think hard about whether or not this will improve performance in a particular situation. A different way to accomplish a similar goal is to forbid empty text and then use the empty text value as a placeholder that signifies Nothing. This alternative may or may not be an option depending on whether or not the empty string is valid in your problem domain.
