I would like to be able to kill running android apps and services from the GUI. Many apps have background running services that are not necessary to run all the time. Also because the multitasking gui shows android apps as one app it would be nice to have quick listing of the running apps.

Also a function to start/stop the alien dalvik would be nice to have. I have seen several problems with android apps that could be solved by restarting alien dalvik.

Android-apps and -services can be killed using an Android app manager. For example ES File manager has one built in. Can't restart Alien-Dalvik like that but it's possible to clean Dalvik cache which might help with some problems.
