you can disable most of the theme and ringtong sections and it runs pretty quick.
1. Remove the theme tsunami that is the Changes tab (ability to filter out categories)
2. More unified description screen with description, changelog and screenshots without having to load a whole external frame
3. If you were installing something that needed a respring and an error occured on the download, don't require the respring, no change was made!
Wouldn't like to see that, it's slow enough already ;-)
Also themes need to be separated into iPhone 3G/3GS, iPhone 4, and iPad.
[just a fyi cause i know more then a few people still on 3.X complaining about cydia speeds]
One confirmed change is that iPad will be getting landscape mode. http://chpwn.com/s/06n6
the only thing i found similar is aptbackup which is a joke!!! only restore on complete system restore... and even then it doesn't work as well as rock did.
