Without a doubt, for me it's \dontcomplain - get rid of overfull 
messages. The name is just brilliant; it would be wonderful to have it 
available in real life! But if we want to be more serious: of course all 
the xml processing commands, and then the multiple \doif... tests which 
make programming in ConTeXt accessible even to people with no 
programming or math background.
