[texhax] Ideas/lists of developer libraries of TeX Macros?

I am interesting in doing some Plain TeX hackery, but there are just too
many wheels I don't want to reinvent.
Since I am interested in dev hackery, I am thinking of TeX as a regular
programming language - and I know that "ordinary" programming language
tend to accumulate special libraries/packages with utility functions
like STL for C or the CPAN for PERL.
In TeX's situation I guess the usual case mixes utilities with the
specific functionality that the package provides, which is especially
common for most small LaTeX classes and styles. So I don't really see
the CTAN as what I need, but some subset of it (or a special package
or...) that focuses on utility macros.
Does any of you have pointers for a dev-oriented library of TeX
utilities that I can reuse? That would be simply awesome!
