This is pretty much what I expect from an 'outcome' vocabulary type. In
my mental model, a 'none_t' would cover the 'partially formed' nascent
and/or forgot-to-produce-an-outcome state which is never looked at
besides contract checking. The failure to produce a T (i.e. violation of
postcondition) is reflected in error_code or exception_ptr.
