How does it compare to gcc 2.95 for you?  I tried out this version and
it is about 0.1s slower than what I had posted.  I'm not sure why.  I
think it has to do with the static initialization of
locale_cache<char> and locale_cache<wchar_t> that are no longer there.
The interface vs. _M_populate I think is an improvement.

A quibble:

Since we've added _S_end to __num_base, we should use it here in place
of _S_udigits_end.  I missed this previously:

+       // A list of valid numeric literals: for the standard "C" locale, this
+       // is "-+xX0123456789abcdef0123456789ABCDEF".  This array contains the
+       // chars after having been passed through the current locale's
+       // ctype<_CharT>.widen().
+       _CharT                    _M_literals[__num_base::_S_udigits_end];

What questions are those?

How do you see this working?  What is the second patch you have in
