As a user:


are incredibly useful and IMHO general enough to be part of a standard
in some form. I expect the new signals/slots will be, too, but I
haven't upgraded my local version to the release using it, so I haven't
used it yet.

I think the improvements in boost::functional should also make it into the standard functions of the same name that that library replaces, though that's not really a separate library.
