I really don't like the idea of global state for this.
Making reusable "format packs" would be nice, though. Perhaps
instances of the convert class should be allowed, so you could do
something like this?
convert<int> myconvert((locale_ = new_locale, throw_ = true));
int i = myconvert.from(str1, 0);
int j = myconvert.from(str1, 0);
