Subject: [boost] [outcome] success-or-failure objects

I'm liking what I saw so far. Just a small comment on the documentation.
I'm curious what the following sentence does even mean? Is it supposed to
confuse the user or something? It's a sign of bad taste really.

>Outcome’s default is to not provide value-or-error objects. It provides
success-or-failure objects.

What does that even mean? value-or-error... well, if it is non-error, I
assume it is success. Both sentences mean just the same. As do their API
(encapsulate either A or B). The rest of the paragraph is okay. If you just
remove this comment, confusion will go away. No other changes need to be
done in this paragraph. Just remove this misleading means-nothing comment.
