I think your solution to dual boost/standalone version is all backwards.
An alternative is to have the Boost.Outcome as the main repository. This
uses Boost.Config and possibly other accepted Boost libraries, and hides
implementation details in boost::outcome::detail. No dependency on
The standalone repository includes Boost.Outcome as a submodule. It also
contains your substitutes for Boost.Config etc. (i.e. "boost-lite"), as
well as CMake scripts.
