No, I'm not overly concerned about Outcome's expected<> interface or
implementation. It's a useful demonstration that your lower layer is
flexible enough to produce it, but the main focus of your library are the
result<> and outcome<> classes (and the error handling framework and
philosophy they represent) as far as I'm concerned. I don't consider
option(al)<> or expected<> a necessary part of that framework.
