boost-lite is no longer part of this review at all now that tribool
support has been dropped, but as you ask, boost-lite requires only C++
11 because lots of libraries beyond Outcome use it, including some C++
11 ones.

Apart from boost_lite::tribool which has now been dropped due to review
feedback, nothing from boost-lite appears in the public interface.
