I don't think that there is any real need to make the Boost library name the same as the namespace name.

I believe the library name should be description - clear not curt (and not cute either ;-).

Nor is there any need to make the namespace name too short IMO.

If code has lots of repeated references to the namespace (unlikely?)

then a using funcutil::some_fun; or even using namespace funcutil; within local scope (not global scope of course).

So I'd suggest Boost.FunctionUtilities and namespace funcutil;

But it's your call (until you get shouted down ;-)
