std.conv.ConvError is an Error which makes it so that you can't catch it
(unless you're willing to catch Errors, which you're not supposed to do). It
should be an Exception so that it can be caught and handled in cases of failure
rather than taking the whole program down with it just because to!() failed.
Presumably, it should be renamed to ConvException as well.

As noted by dsimcha on Phobos list, ConvError should be left as a deprecated
alias to ConvException for a few releases to mitigate code breakage.
