Apart from trac ticket #9703, which is deadly, it’s working well so far.
One missing feature would be a WIDGET_DEBUG mode, that would place the server’s feedback in a special div tag at the bottom of the page — without needing to edit the WP code base and use a js debugger. Debugging a new widget’s upgrade scripts is mostly impossible without such a thing.
Also, last I checked anyway, it broke old style multi-widgets. If it still does, it would be sweet that it didn’t — else, quite a few plugins will need to be rewritten. But that might be asking for the moon.
