Yes of course. My question was what you intend to happen.

This would only work if I use boost/outcome/outcome_v1.0.hpp, right? The
headers in v1.0/ do not compile without boost-lite.

An interesting position. I, however, in order to decide between Yes and No,
need to know what, precisely, will happen on Yes.

Of course I could say Yes if you do such and so, otherwise No, but it's good
to know how you see things and what's your intent.
