What functions should be moved to basic MATLAB?

What are some of the functions that you think should be moved from a toolbox into basic MATLAB?
The function should be one that you have found is used in a variety of situations including outside of purposes related to the toolbox it is found in.
Keep in mind that if a function is a major feature of its respective toolbox, then moving it into basic MATLAB is not likely to happen.
This is not a discussion of which toolboxes should be merged into basic MATLAB... that is a very different discussion!!

Im tempted to say shaperead from the Mapping Toolbox. Yes, I know shaperead is a big part of the Mapping Toolbox but shapefiles are used in a wide variety of fields and its really hard to live without that function. Otherwise I would nominate boxplot from the Statistic Toolbox. Its a small function that could easily be in basic Matlab.
