Even if it's not a done deal yet... I sincerely hope contracts make it in C++20!

This proposal only supports basic pre- and postconditions. It does not
support class invariants and old values, not to mention
subcontracting. These are all supported by Boost.Contract instead.

Therefore Boost.Contract will still be useful even if P0542R0 is
accepted in C++20 (namely, when class invariants, old values, or
subcontracting might be needed).
