It sounds pretty useful to me too: indeed I was just wondering the other day
why C++ doesn't have functions for squares and cubes (they're handy if you
want to square or cube some other - maybe complex - expression).

If someone would like to package it up with tests and docs, I'd be happy to
integrate this into Boost.Math.
