Subject: Re: [boost] [review] outcome broken on MSVC, plus questions

Hi Niall,

Still working on the review; I had the following questions while
reading the threads:

1. Which versions of MSVC 2017 does boost-outcome not work on, right now?

2. According to the documentation, outcome and boost-outcome both
require MSVC 2017, right?
i.e. They do not support MSVC 2015 or lower?

3. Is standalone outcome fine with MSVC2017, only boost-outcome that is broken?
  3.1. If so, is it right that the boost-outcome repository is
"generated" from the outcome repository?
  And is that the reason that boost-outcome is broken on MSVC 2017?

4. Would you happen to know how does your outcome/result compare to
Peter's outcome/result in variant2?
(I saw you point out that Peter implemented expected, and then I saw
he also had an outcome/result implementation in variant2).
  4.1. What different compilers and standards does his support
compared to yours?
  4.2. What kind of code is generated from his implementation compared to yours?
