The initial motivation of this 'to_string' thread was to implement an
easy to use wrapper for ostringstream, thus, eliminating the need to
deal with the 'details' of the stream. Naturally, a wrapper cannot
yield more power than what is delivered by the underlying core.

the 'into_string' interface uses the dedicated into_string_proxy
class. This class isn't derived from std::ios_base so I/O
manipulators cannot co-work with it.
