Of course, Boost has some macros that might help with this
But I can't see any objection to requiring a C++14 compiler. I suspect Outcome will mainly or only be used for new projects, a good
time to start using the most recent (and fewer bugged) compiler.
PS I haven't felt qualified to make a worthwhile review, but I would vote ACCEPT from reading the views of other reviewers. Many of
the objections seem insubstantial.
