Interfaces - great for plugin API stuff.
Classes with __get and __set, potential for nice theme work.
Phar - may also have great plugin potential
Streams support, has great potential in a few areas such as the
templating engine, which would be a nice place to be able to fiddle
with streams when including and requiring.
Filter. Everyone knows we could probably use it.
PDO + bound parameters, no more SQL injection
DateTime. Proper timezone support.
JSON. Native C class.
headers_list(), really needed to finish implementing WP-Cache properly.
php_check_syntax(), properly implement the plugins avoiding fatal errors code.
Zip. Also has potential for plugins and themes.

I can think of more if necessary.
