I want to mimic the proof environment from the amsthm package.

I want something that has the same layout (margins, etc.) as the proof environment, but with the following changes:

1) Instead of beginning with Proof., I want it to begin with Proof outline.

2) I don't want a white box added at the end.

Here is introductory text.
Here is text in the proof.
Here is concluding text.

You can do this just by patching in a few optional commands to the proof environment itself.

 {\renewcommand\qedsymbol{}\proof[Proof outline]}

 This is not a proof.
