Subject: [boost] [conversion] try_lexical_cast and 200$
From: Antony Polukhin (antoshkka_at_[hidden])

There is a bounty for implementing a `try_lexical_cast` from Facebook:

Because of that three questions arise:

* Is there some official policy for "feature implementation sponsorship"?

* `try_lexical_cast` must be added or not? And if yes, what signature is

bool try_lexical_cast<Out, In>(Out&, const In&)
bool try_lexical_cast<Out, In>(const In&, Out&)
boost::optional<Out> try_lexical_cast<Out, In>(const In&)

* Is there a bank account "for Boost's needs" that is used to do hosting
payments, conference room rental payments and other support stuff (to were
those 200$ may be transfered)?

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
