However, char, signed char, and unsigned char are different types.
int8_t is supposed to be typedef'd as signed char, which is a different
type than char. I do not see any reason lexical_cast<int8_t>() or
lexical_cast<signed char>() should be treated the same way as
lexical_cast<char> since the internal C++ type mechanisms treat "char"
"signed char" and "unsigned char" as completely different types...
