Great. But it seems this might take some time. While changes I proposed
are quite simple requiring little work. As a proof of that I attach
lexical_cast.hpp changed to cover what I proposed.
I have added classic_lexical_cast which uses std::locale::classic()
during the casting. Both version propagate std::locale object to be used. If
traditional version is used a NULL pointer is propagated so nothing actually
changes and overhead should be marginal.
Adding a cat (or other function) which takes arbitrary object should be
easy with this code however I have not done it since I don't need it.
What do you think about those changes? Can they be included in Boost
