If reviewers make acceptance conditional on Outcome using Boost instead
of the C++ 11 STL for everything, then that configuration would be
activated and made permanent some how.

Note it hasn't been tested in well over a year, but it used to work once
and it could be resurrected without huge effort.

It's stale. I didn't want to invest the effort of removing it until the
review decides what form they want to accept Outcome in, if at all. You
may have noticed the large matrix of #if statements building an ABI
string, all that stuff takes lots of tedious effort to rejig.
