comment Optional throws error when called from a package. Workaround?
Just one point of clarification: while it is true that the FE by default uses the StandardForm/TraditionalForm parser MakeExpression, which is different from the InputForm parser used by package files and a standalone kernel, the FE doesn't actually make the ToExpression call seen above. The FE maintains "box expressions" which you can see using the Cell -> Show Expression menu item. These are sent directly when the head Optional appears to the right of a colon, MakeExpression is parsing the result incorrectly. An old bug, but probably one which should be pretty easy to fix.

comment Incomplete Integration in Area
The "NIntegrate" method should work here. It's being overly strictly in how it's testing the endpoints. I will file a bug and try to fix this for the next release. Thanks.
