I find Boost.Bind, Boost.Function, and Boost.Signal, extremely "widely
useful" in my work. (I haven't actually used Boost.Signal in production code
yet, but there are places I used a boost::function where a signal was
clearly the right thing.)

Compile-time assertions also seem rather important and widely useful to me.

I'm also very fond of next() and prior().

I think that checked_delete should be fixed in the core language.

Also, the concept checking library and compressed_pair both seem important.
