Thank you all for giving comments and ideas!

Looks like it'll be `bool try_lexical_convert<Out, In>(const In&, Out&)`:

 * boost::optional version adds additional dependency + boost::optional
does not support move semantics well, so it'll be hard to implement a very
efficient try_lexical_convert with current boost::optional
* returning bool looks like the simplest solution that can be easily
adopted by user
* output parameter is at the last position (like it is done in many
Standard Library methods)
* name contains "convert" instead of "cast", because function does not look
like a cast

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
