I think another good project would be a redesign of Boost.Pool,
especially now with the stateful allocators of C++11 and Boost.Container.
a pool on the stack together with a stateful allocator in an
container::vector can replace the often proposed auto_buffer,
thread-local pools which only lock a mutex when full, pools with
different complexity guarantees (the current Boost.Pool has a often
unacceptable linear complexity on delete), containers that "embed" a
certain amount of memory which they are likely to use and only allocate
when they exceed that size, ...
