[SoaS] Proposed New Feature: Features/Revised Browse default-bookmarks.html

In a discussion with Peter Robinson last night' on #sugar-meeting,I 
learned that a custom Browse bookmark can be downloaded from the fedora 
repository. I propose to use this "Feature" to allow a custom set of 
bookmarks to be maintained that would have a series of links ie: 
e-books; Floss Manuals; wiki.sugarlabs.org, (maybe all of the proposed 
links to files in the SugarCreationKit DVD)+ a link to The Normal Browse 
Google Screen 

    * This should be a simple edit in Browse to point to
      file:///usr/share/bookmarks/default-bookmarks.html instead of

    * Repointing the default-screen allows us to have fedora supply our
      revised "Start New" screen ( or maybe several depending on the
      deployment or schools requirements to Soas v4)

Alternate path: edit 
/usr/share/sugar/activities/Browse.activity/data/index.html. This would 
allow sugarlabs to maintain the list.

    * In this case: the Browse.xo on ASLO would also need to be changed
      as installed activities seem to be stored in a different location
      than .xo files -(I think)
