Sorry, I thought I had answered when I said:

/" At one time there was a ASLO->Sugar Network synchronization script. "

/That is precisely the extent of the current relationship between ASLO
and Sugar Network, nothing more.
There is no communication or dependency between them.

There is no reason we should not try again.

I disagree. Tooling is very important. We should not abandon the vision
of learners producing activities and sharing them. That is what Sugar
Labs is about, after all.

I'd choose the datastore/framework with care, to try to accommodate nano
servers as well as large servers, and also that it is well supported.

But, keep it simple and maintainable.
