1) Default constructor.
2) Constructs the wstring_convert object with a specified conversion facet, using default-constructed values for the shift state and the error strings
3) Constructs the wstring_convert object with a specified conversion facet and specified shift state, using default-constructed values for the error strings
4) Constructs the wstring_convert object with specified error strings, using new Codecvt as the conversion facet and the default-constructed state_type as shift state.
5) The copy constructor is deleted, wstring_convert is not CopyConstructible


pcvt - pointer to the conversion facet of type Codecvt (behavior is undefined if this pointer is null)
state - initial value of the conversion shift state
byte_err - narrow string to display on errors
wide_err - wide string to display on errors
