[erlang-questions] Poor interface of string:to_integer/to_float

The interfaces to the functions string:to_integer/1 and string:to_float/1 is, to put it mildly, very poor. You get the impressions that someone needed special case functions which were then put into the libraries. Would it be possible to change them to something more useful? Shall I write an EEP?
