I have noticed instances of various automated Bitcoin based services being interrupted by the client hanging or crashing... Is is possible to easily 'ping' a client so as to assess its health? Something like a watchdog timer that could trigger an action like restarting the client or alerting an admin...
The system/OS should manage that, otherwise, the client will become a bloatware...

You can do it like that under linux (i use that for my miners) :
Code:
while true; do bitcoind --params; done

And if you want to receive a mail after a crash :
Code:
while true; do bitcoind --params; echo -e "body\n\n" | mail admin@bitcoin-contact.org -s "Bitcoin crash..."; done

There's a nice program called monit which does this sort of thing. It's already in your package manager; go get it.

In another thread, they proposed bringing accounts into the UI, and doing them a little differently. Every transaction would be labelled with an account name. You could filter your wallet and only view txns for a certain account. And most importantly, you could pay from an account, and it would only use coins from that account.

This would make accounts be like virtual wallets, so you could have anonymous accounts and identity based accounts, and the coins wouldn't get intermixed. This should satisfy at least some use cases for choosing coins to pay with.

Maybe these should be called something different from accounts, as current accounts are kind of fictitious. Moving money between accounts is currently just bookkeeping, while with what I am talking about it would require an actual transaction. Maybe these should be called something like virtual wallets, or wallet partitions.

Between friends and for small payments - I'd like a Friend-to-Friend mode with online reputations(trust ratings) or a reputation network something like the ripple system but with Bitcoins.

I also agree with removing the default CPU miner. It causes more problems than good.

Separating the GUI from the command line would probably be a good idea too, but I have no idea about the effort that would be needed.

It is much easier to break stuff than to build it.

Removing the miner and GUI is a nobrainer. Just remove it and let someone else to build GUI on top of JSON API, in just a few weeks there will be a handful of competing GUI implementations. Every PHP 'programmer' out there would take a shot at it. The best way to improve stuff in open source world is to let go.
There already is one client that runs via RPC, and it is very unstable...I think its a good idea, in theory, and may be good for some people, but most people don't want to have to bother with opening multiple programs just to run Bitcoin.  There already is bitcoind which does what you want, just help make Spesmilo better.
Currently, the devs dont want to deffer too much from what Satoshi intended.  This keeps one client which is "mainline", but with all the new clients there should be plenty to do what you want. 
I do, however, agree that "Generate Bitcoins" should be removed or, at least, renamed to something like "Donate CPU Time to help the Bitcoin Network" due to the extreme difficulty of mining on CPUs these days.

Spesmilo isn't unstable but it requires a patch to bitcoin that has been ignored,

This is needed. But nobody has merged it in yet.
