At the start of the year 2000, there was a suggestion
for a stream_cast.

I have now extensively used the concept (more precisely, a
re-implementation of the concept) in some software which needs
to do some partially structured text I/O. I would like to
second Steve Cleary's idea to have an exception-throwing
variant of stream_cast (naming suggestion: stream_cast_ex)
so that conversion errors are not silently ignored.

stream_cast is really useful.

Can we please have it officially added?
