This probably applies to many data structures that have specific (and
rare) applications. A priority queue that takes a custom comparator
seems like a pretty frequent (algorithmic) use case to me, however
(and so does a
limited capacity queue).
As an example, you can see the implementation of such a PQ in Apache
Lucene -- it is used all over the place .
