One thing very obvious in this review so far is how overwraught it has
made that choice seem.

I think as soon as you start writing some code using Outcome, you'll
find the choice flows naturally. Using this library in your code is far,
far, far easier and more intuitive than this review makes it seem. They
are very simple objects, and very easy to use. Often the simpler the
object, the more bikeshedding and strong opinions and noise result.
