 Patch to Boost Lexical Cast library, that returns Target directly
 constructed from Source in cases, when:[[BR]]
 1) Source and Target are arithmetics (and not char or wchar_t), and all
 values of Source are in range of Target[[BR]]
 2) Source and Target are both char or both wchar_t[[BR]]
 3) Source is array of CharT and Target is std::basic_string<CharT,
 4) Source and Target are std::basic_string with same template

 It gives performance boost more than 10 times in case 1), about 7 times in
 case 2), and about 1.5 times in cases 3) and 4).

 Existing tests for Boost Lexical Cast library cover considered cases.
 Patch was successfully tested on Intel 11.1.072, g++-4.4.5, VC++9

 It has the same behaviour, when casting out of bounds (int -> unsigned
 int, int -> short, unsigned int -> int). For checking bounds it uses
 boost::numeric::conversion_traits from

 Closes the ticket #4397[[BR]]
