Sorry for missing the meeting - I should have made it, but just didn't
notice the time while preparing for a talk with a colleague.
I've put some more comments in-line...

Strong +1 from my side on e-books! :)

I love it, too! Well, nothing put in stone at all, but I think we might
want to clarify the code-name for the next release a bit earlier.

/me thinks he'll try downloading Alice in Wonderland into SoaS builds...

Actually, this hasn't made it into Sugar 0.86, has it? I guess we might

users to the terminal just to change this, again.
Using firstboot might be worth considering here, however, I could use a
hand with hacking...
