I would love to see a 3rd party libraries directory added to wp-content, a separate repository from which the libraries can be installed, and a mechanism for describing which libraries are required for a given plugin or theme. Has anyone played with http://getcomposer.org/?

A big +1.  

It's been debated in the past with no resolution, but maybe it's finally time the team will start considering it?  We just start using a /wp-content/libraries/ directory ourselves.
