Although I think we've determined that the functions involved won't be
impacted -- so we're warning about a future non-event. Perhaps turning off
the warning in lexical_cast is the correct option for 1.73 with a refactor
(probably of math functions to core) for 1.74.

I'd commit the pr to lexical_cast myself, no pressure required. But
looking at the code it wasn't trivial and I can see why it was wise to
depend on the expertise of boost.math instead of trying to re-invent.
