I'm interested in the concept, but we would need to do a lot better
that the code in the sandbox:

Much of boost/system/detail/inlined/error_code.hpp code duplicates
libs/system/src/error_code.cpp code. That isn't acceptable since it
would create a maintenance nightmare. Code for each component needs to
be defined in a single file, with macro magic to abstract away the
difference between the library. Having to do every maintenance fix in
two places isn't practical - the code will certainly diverge over

The test framework also needs more work. Testing only the inlined
version doesn't give enough confidence the library version works OK.
