Actually, I use them all the time.

But my playing strategy is badly suboptimal, I know. Since I've never
played over the 'net, I've never been trashed as I deserve. I grow my
cities large, and I use marketplaces and banks all the time, both for
money and their luxury effect.  I control almost all my unhappiness
with banks (and a luxury rate).

That's a more fun strategy for me, and it's sufficient to beat the
hard AI.

Funnily enough, I don't use librarys, though. By the time I can
economically afford to build them, I seem to already be ahead in the
science race, so there's no point.
