>From Sugar Network point of view, that raises an interesting question:

    Is it possible to integrate custom (wikiotics) objects to the Sugar

For sure, it is possible to create standalone activity, but developers
will need to handle not trivial cases like synchronization in offline
environments. Sugar Network will provide such synchronization by its
design, plus, the around functionality like
comments/ratings/questions/problems. (It will be especailly useful if
will be devloped SugarNetwork/wikiotics.org gate).

Thats definitely the to go for Sugar Network after its initial relese.
