One thing we had discussed with respect to an IDE was that it should
hide all directory structure in the GUI.  The child could create
categories or something, but there's really no reason whatsoever to
expose that when the only thing that needs it is the activity.info file
and the icon, both of which are in the same directory.

We don't have a "file manager", so there's no other place where
directories are/should be exposed right now.  "objects" added to the
project (be they icons, python code, pictures, whatever) could be tagged
with arbitrary tags and sorted by those tags in the project layout.
Python makes things somewhat complicated by imposing a directory
structure underneath the 'imports' command, but for the moment we had
thought that a simplified activity IDE for children should just show a
flat structure.
