user_option there is an enum, so it doesn't really have to be const, but what the hell

also, this is embarrassing because I never put braces on the same line as the function declaration

"grace, is this const correct"

@BestGirlGrace i’m trying to come up with a good pun for this, but i’m just staring at it in consternation

@BestGirlGrace okay, so it returns a constant pointer to a constant string?

@violet Yeah. Though, returning a constant pointer doesn't really change much.

@BestGirlGrace yeah, though, why doesn't it return a reference? Is it because it can return a nullptr?

@violet This one can, yeah. It's possible for the option to not be found, so you either get the thing or a nullptr.

@BestGirlGrace hmm. Could use an optional there, but in all honesty probably doesn't make a difference :)

@violet Yeah, I originally used an optional, but you can't put references in an optional (or most stl containers) and returning an optional pointer seemed redundant.

@BestGirlGrace walks in speaking Java like “const, is that like final?”

“I’m *ppft* sorry *pffft* ma’am *plplt*, I *ptt* can’t *pflft* understand *fft* your *pflft* accent *pblflflt*”
