Here are some things I would add.

1.Collision detection
For example if you've ever used gamemaker there is an option to make objects solid. Alice could have something like this and if an object is solid it can't pass through a solid object and a solid object cant pass through it. BTW In my opinion gamemaker is not nearly as great as Alice. YES!

2.Stretching Objects
I'm not sure if this is already possible but lets say I have a cube and i want to make it wider but not taller. If I use the stretch button it stretches uniformly. There should be a way to make it stretch in one direction or be able to change only width, length or height at one time. Try draggin g in a "resize" method, click on More, go to dimension, pick how you want the object to resize, then drag it into the viewerthingymajigger.

3.Mouse Controls Camera
This is a big one that must absolutely be added. You should be able to control the camera with the mouse without having to click down. This will help soooooooooooooooo much with people trying to make FPSes. ALSO YES!

You should be able to save Alice worlds as standalone executables or the mac equivalent (dmg or app ?). Also, can the Export as web page feature be fixed? That would be good.

That's all I got for now but as I come across things I'll post them up here.
