 Your solution is good, but it will break the behavior.
 When BOOST_NO_INTRINSIC_WCHAR_T is defined, {{{unsigned short}}} must
 behave as {{{wchar_t}}}, as a lexical character. Your solution will leave
 {{{unsigned int}}} integral (not lexical) behavior.

 Bugfix is already in trunk, you can try it. As soon as it rolls through
 regression tests, it will be merged to trunk. After that (and other
 bugfixes), some refactoring will be done and better support for char16_t
 and char32_t types will be added to lexical_cast library.
