Lots of people use boost, particularly the smart pointers.

If it is useful, package it (most boost stuff is in a BSD-type licence).  I am 
not suggesting you should, but saying it couldn't be used until it is in the 
standard is very limp.  I hope slot/signal systems never get in the standard, 
and I would be surprised if they do.
