   How would this interact with 0? If we had to_string(const char *) and
then someone called to_string(0), would to_string(const char *) be called?
If so, this could be a problem, because I think that the string constructor
that takes a const char * will crash if it is passed a null char pointer.
Even if it didn't crash, it would return an empty string, not the string
