I would make outcome<> reuse 100% of result<>'s implementation, by stealing
another page from your playbook:

class extended_error_code
    std::error_code e_;
    std::exception_ptr x_;

template<class T> using outcome = result<T, extended_error_code>;

I would also use union { T t; E e; } in result instead of a struct. :-)
