I think there should be a Boost facets library,
with the UTF-8 codecvt facet and my non-finite number facets.
There is no reason why they should be buried in the serialization library.

But I'm not the right person to take care of that.
My area is scientific computing and GUI programming,
and I know almost nothing about locales, facets and internationalization.
