work/emacs-0% grep -l outline-regexp lisp/progmodes/*.el

It's also defined in lisp-mode (which is in emacs-lisp).
I also define it in sml-mode, so I expect other non-bundled packages use it
that way for programming modes.

Admittedly, for programming languages that allow/encourage the definition
of local functions, outline is a bit limited (if the headings are defined
as the function-heads, outline will believe that the end of a subfunction
is either the beginning of the next subfunction or the end of the enclosing
function :-( ).

But I use it very happily (together with reveal-mode) in elisp.
