My only concern about this is that IIUC Bjorn has been making lots of
promises that the new lexical_cast was going to be in 1.30.0. I
don't want to break promises without due consideration. It might be
better to wait a few days to clear the issues, if it looks feasible.
One other possible approach would be to ship the new code in parallel
somehow, but that's pretty ugly.
