This is excellent work.

I might suggest one further thing, which is to turn some of his Sugar
integration 'inside out' and create a JavaScript API which can be called
from webapps to do sugar-specific tasks (journal integration, etc).  Then
the python wrapper can be fixed, and people can write "pure javascript" web
apps which run in browsers, on android phones, or on sugar... taking
advantage of sugar capabilities where available.

(Step 2 might then to implement that JavaScript API on Android, so that
apps can have sugar toolbars, a journal, etc, even when running on phones
and tablets.)
