Hi all,

When compiling a lexical_cast< int >( foo ) call using MSVC 7.1 with /W4, I get a C4701 "unreferenced variable" warning. This is because the compiler doesn't know that the throw_exception function never returns. This warning can be fixed by adding "__declspec( noreturn )" before "void throw_exception". I would generate a patch, but I'm unsure how long noreturn has been supported by the compiler, so I don't know what kind of conditional to use.

Thanks for the great library!
