Yes, in the short run, yes.
That is what I've put togegther.
But Paul is working on a proposal to the C++ standardization committee
to get proper handling of infinity and NaN into the standard streams,
without the need for special facets.

P.S. These are not codecvt facets. They are num_put and num_get facets.
Different base classes.
