Functions to_string and to_wstring are part of the upcoming C++0x
standard. However, there is no to_u16string and to_u32string.

As for me, it is easier to remember one function lexical_cast, than
tens of of them: stoi, stoll, stof, to_string, to_wstring, stod...
Also, it is hard to use those functions in generic programming.
