Probably just a slip of the mind, but:
to_string doesn't need a template parameter. Explicitly
writing to_string<int>(s) is probably a bad idea and convert<int> would
correspond to from_string<int>(s).
However, maybe we ought to ask why this keeps happening. I think
there's something about the convert<...>(...) interface that confuses
people. Eliminating directionality might not be such a hot idea.
