This is absolutely crucial. Imagine you have to read XML files with many
thousands of strings...

BTW, that's the same reason that lexical_cast isn't applicable for many
real cases. Its catastrophic performance inhibits every usage whenever
speed _could_ be an issue...

I would like to see this conversion functions available at a more
general place than the serialization library. But probably there is much
more to do to improve internationalization support than only providing
string/wstring conversion ;)
