Subject: [boost] [property_tree] stream_translator <-> lexical_cast

By scanning briefly through the property_tree implementation I noticed that it
uses its own stream_translator<> class for string-to-other_type and vice verse
conversions. The functionality seems very similar/overlapping to that of
lexical_cast (and also uses streams), if this is true this part of
property_tree should probably be refactored to use lexical_cast so that it gets
implicitly 'fixed' when/if lexical_cast gets fixed (regarding the issues
outlined in the previous relevant post).
