with all due respect, it is happening rather often in Uruguay, of course 
limited to the tiny minority of teachers who actually use Sugar and the 
XO beyond its most vanilla lineup, that is, those who actually use Sugar 
and the XO besides its qualities as an übercool paperweight :-(

The good news is those teachers communicate with each other and help 
each other sort things out, giving us hope that eventually they will 
grow in numbers, and a lot of them will have problems, which is good 
news when the alternative is they don't use things or try new things at all.
