Yes, I think it's a good idea. Will do. the 'apply' was a quick hack anyway.

I looked a Boost.Parameter and will certainly try using it somewhere. My
hesitation with it for boost::convert is I am under impression that the set
of acceptable parameters (radix_, etc.) has to be predefined and therefore
cannot be extended by the user when formatting like "convert(str) >>
std::hex" seems more flexible.
