Nuh, my home laptop about 10 years old. Trying the code with Microsoft
Visual C++ 2010 Express and gcc 4.8.2. Will try again on my Linux
power-house on Monday.

For fun I quickly hacked together a scanf-based converter and plugged it
into the "convert" framework. The optimized build is as efficient or close
to the raw scanf()... Only safe... And beats lexical_cast in my tests...
