Here are a few suggestions for Python:
Extend hex() and %x to work on longs, floats, and strings.
Add the C99 %a and %A formats.
Add a module that wraps the C99 macros and functions that work with
special floating point values and floating point exceptions.
Since most C compilers are not C99 compliant, some of these ideas might
need to be written in C rather than just wrapped.
