    It sure would be great if you could make ArcMap and ArcCatalog be able to read, edit, and write ArcPad .apl files like .lyr files.  I often want to add background shapefiles from an ArcPad project to an ArcMap session and it would be a huge timesaver to have them come in symbolized as they are in the ArcPad app.
