Is there anyway to tell what version (flavor) of sugar, (and hardware), 
a user is logging in with?

If so, could this trigger a custom list of activities for his/her 
version to be listed?

If not, maybe there should be a signature (cookie?) mechanism developed 
for sugar that ASLO could use to select the compatible activities to 

It works for browsers....
