These are very useful, but may be hard to make portable. But I guess you
could claim that as long as it works on all platforms that have a sense
of wide-character strings, it is portable.

In any case, shouldn't they be part of the operation of lexical_cast?.
I.e. lexical_cast<wstring>(string()) would perform the same function as
your to_wstring would.
