 comments. The comments in this ticket seem sufficient for reviewing the
 patch itself.

 Once again: the issue is already resolved in developer branch of Boost.

 You are wrong. `lexical_cast function` '''does''' compile with
 results] for `lexical_cast_no_exceptions_test`. And it compiles for a long

 -DBOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS support and calls to modified numeric::converter can
 be added once the basic functionality is approved.

 Once again: the '''issue is already resolved''' in developer branch of
