Sorry. That was very poorly worded. I use qi and karma (boost.spirit) to
do most conversions now. It is blazing fast and I don't have to keep
patching lexical_cast to handle bases other than base 10.

There has been some discussion on the spirit mailing list by Jeroen
Habraken submitting a spirit_cast that will look a lot like lexical_cast
syntax. Initial tests are very very promising and I think the code looks
clean. I hope he submits it soon.
