Comment(by dsd):

 When I saw this idea originally I didn't like it, but I've now warmed up
 to it.

 Deletion of activities is certainly a big problem in OLPC deployments to
 the point where at least 2 of them (Nicaragua, Peru) have completely
 removed the "Erase activity" option, for all activities (clearly a sub-
 standard "solution" to the problem).

 The ideal solution needs to:
  1. Allow the deployment to prevent deletion of a specific set of
 activities - the ones that are covered in teacher training, the ones that
 lesson plans are provided for, etc.
  2. Not hinder the user's ability to download additional activities, and
 delete them at their will

 This patch meets both requirements and the implementation has my vote
 (I've reviewed the patch).

 As far as I can see, the only pending task is to get a comment from the
 design team about hiding or greying out the option. As they are responsive
 and it isn't a big decision, this should only require a couple of quick
