Well if I could make a wish: I can live with not so good error
messages. I would prefer if the documentation would improve in the
realm "what can we do to manipulate fonts". I would love to see
examples about "how to reencode a font", "how to change the kerning
of a char", "how to add a ligature", "how to pull a missing glyph
from another font" -- naturally in a way that is "safe" and
"official" and can e.g. be used in a package.
