Regarding TurtleArt. Background: over the past few weeks I've been
sugarizing TA, adding the sugar toolbar, journal integration, and
removing the load/save/new buttons on the UI (which would pop up GTK
load/save boxes; no longer necessary.) 

However, TurtleArt has a lot of samples that come with it, which are
useful in learning how to use it. 

Removing the load/save dialogs also removed any way to get to the
samples, and Brian and I were wondering on the best way to replace the
UI for them.

Any ideas?
