Let me further elaborate here.
A success is a non-failure and a failure is a non-success. I guess that's
the same understanding everybody has here.
Now... value-or-error... if it is non-error (value)... I already assume it
is success. I just don't see a difference between value-or-error and
Not even on the "layer level of language". I see people writing "error
case" and "failure case" interchangeably. They just mean the same.
The argument "value-or-error is not what we provide" could buy me if
Outcome didn't carry a T on the success case, but that is not the case.
