IDEA!!! ok all mobs should have a bar above their head. the friendship bar. you should be able to craft this
 ]" title="-<->" />
  or something like that... these feathers on a stick are friendship sticks. hit mobs with this, and the friendship bar will fill with every hit. once full, mobs become peaceful and follow you around. they will follow you every where, and right clicking these mobs will activate their special power. Downside: Everytime their special is used, their friendship bar is halved. so if you tell zombie to break a block, he goes from full bar (4 hits) to half bar (2 hits) and if the bar empties, (and it will empty over time) the mob becomes hostile again and attacks.
Creeper: 5 hits to fill bar, special power, repel other mobs, hostile or not (30 seconds)
Zombie: 4 hits to fill, Special power, Break a block, cannot break anything that takes more than 3 seconds to mine (diamond, Obsidian and what not)
Spider: 4 hits to fill, jump on and ride for 10 seconds, adds speed
pig: 2 hits, oinks when other (hostile) mobs are nearby
sheep: 2 hits, nothing
Zombie pigmen: 9 hits, Attack other mobs (until the other mob dies)
in order to use the special, you must have and even number in your bar, so you can use the special at 8, 6, 4, or 2.
the friendship bar should slowly run out, every 10 seconds, it goes down by one. it can be renewed with the friendship stick, but the stick has limited uses, only 18 hits. you can have two mobs at a time, but only one special can be active at a time.
ALSO I heard notch say that he is adding tame-able wolves... this should be what is used in order to tame them
