#6700: Exceptionless lexical_cast
  Reporter: Olaf van der Spek <olafvdspek@…> | Owner: apolukhin

Comment (by ben.maurer@…):

 Any update on if you'd consider doing this? At Facebook we've seen many
 instances of programs that call lexical_cast in a try/catch. In cases
 where the parsing is expected to fail (eg, an argument could be an int or
 a date) we frequently see extremely poor performance in multithreading.
 GCC is known to have poor multithreaded exception handling

 Facebook is currently running a bug bounty program for open source bugs,
 and this is a bug that might be worthy of such a bounty, if is something
 there is interest in merging.
