You might want to split such a poll in several groups — one for hackers/enthusiasts/early adopters and one "for the average programmer".

Because the results will be quite different.

The first group would probably want  something like worker pools, various protocol implementations, control structures or what not.
The second group would want image manipulation libraries on par with imagemagick, full PCRE support (with unicode!) and a unified database driver a la JDBC.

Some of these choices may overlap, but not all of them.
