This is a front on which we have actually made some progress. I believe
it is already the case that any activity installed as a .xo bundle appears
as such in the Journal, even if it has never been launched. The next step
is to make sure that all Activities appear as Journal entries, so that
they are susceptible to the usual mechanisms for search, tagging,
deletion, etc.. Throw in a special "create new instance" option on
Activity journal entries, and we're functionally ready.
