Generate fails either if one of the used generators fail or if the
underlying output iterator reports an error.

Doesn't it 'return' a std::string? If you dislike the current API a small
wrapper function can easily handle that.

But just to avoid confusion: what API are you looking for?

    std::string("61626f6465") --> std::string("abode")

or rather:

    0x61626f6465UL --> string("abode")

(none of which can be easily done with Spirit, btw).
