Have no idea about the namespace name. I`ll think about it later.
Function overloads for boost::containers::basic_string will be in
namespace boost::containers (to allow ADL), and will be imported in
the namespace of the to_string library.

Some of the boost users write "using namespace boost; using namespace
std;" in their projects, so I think it would be better to place thous
functions in a separate namespace to avoid ambiguity.
