He uses a function named c_str() in his own namespace, overloaded for each enumeration
type set up by the library. It doesn't do anything automatically with operator<<,
lexical_cast, or Boost.Format. You have to call c_str(e) when you want it.

For the time being, I've made a function called to_string, which seems to be a common
choice. But what's the best way to make it automatically known to those other features?
