 Replying to [comment:7 anonymous]:

 it may prove even worse than the try/catch/lexical_cast cascade. it's
 better to provide a way to supply some "schema" to the parser so he would
 know each property's type. explicit is better than implicit, as they say.

 Agree. The explicit schema would be a much better solution. Especially if
 that schema can be uniformly adapted across all ptree's parsers.
