(string_to_number): New function, replacing isfloat_string.
This function checks for valid syntax and produces the resulting
Lisp float number too. Rework it so that string-to-number
no longer mishandles examples like "1.0e+".
no longer mishandles examples like "1.0e+". Use strtoimax,
so that overflow for non-base-10 numbers is reported only when
there's no portable and simple way to convert to floating point.
