If I'm not mistaken, the proposed library is about string conversions.
The wider scope can't be understood or appreciated from within a
to_string/from_string discussion.

If you want to consider to_string and from_string a starting point for
a more generic convert() interface, fine -- but that's still a
separate interface that should be outside this discussion.
