    Is this to avoid the `NullPointerException` you saw before
was merged? I wondered about this.
    The problem with returning `Maybe.of(null)` if the entity can't be resolved is that it's
different semantics from `deferredSupplier.get()`. For the latter, it would throw `NoSuchElementException`
with a nice message explaining it. Now this will just return a null.
    The intent is that `getImmediately()` will either return `absent()` if it can't be resolved
immediately, or will return immediately exactly the same value as `get()` would.
