Subject: [boost] lexical_cast optimization

Someone was asking me today about the inefficiency of lexical_cast for
its common itoa/atoi-like usage, and it occurred to me that it could
*easily* be optimized to handle the common cases by dispatching to
itoa/atoi ftoa/atof where available, and even sprintf. Seems like a
great idea to me.
