Subject: [boost] Checking interest in to_string functions
From: Antony Polukhin (antoshkka_at_[hidden])

As was mentioned in `[boost] to_string(v)`
1) Functions to_string and to_wstring are part of the upcoming C++0x
standard. However, there are no functions for char16_t and char32_t
2) Some users can't use C++11 in some projects for quite some time,
but can use boost.
3) "to_string(5)" is a lot shorter than
"lexical_cast<std::string>(5)". Some users would like to use a shorter

Is there interest in stoi, stoll, stof, to_string, to_wstring,
to_u16string, stod and other functions for char, wchar_t, char16_t and
char32_t conversions?
Shall I add them to lexical_cast library, or as a separate conversion library?

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
