I'd like to speak up for the 'functional' library, which I think is a
very important ease-of-use extension of the standard library. It also
uses call_traits, which uses type_traits, so those are obviously more
important. One of the things it deals with is references to references;
if the core language were to address that directly, that aspect of the
library could easily be dropped.
Anyway, I use functional all the time now, and don't know if I could
deal with all the shenanigans to use the strict standard functional
