Nice, but how do we determine if we have internet connectivity, by
pinging a host such as activities.sugarlabs.org every now and then?
If it's sufficiently low-bandwidth, then I'd be in favor. Since no other
OS currently does something similar, there's a high chance that this
idea was already tried and found to be unfeasible.
