We have two ways to incorporate content into a running activity: pasting
or dropping from the clipboard, or using the objectchooser in
sugar.graphics for retrieving an object from the journal.

The first option requires a way for putting samples in the clipboard,
which I see difficult to do in a reasonable way.

The second option means the sample projects need to be individual
objects in the journal. The activity could save those to the DS on first
launch, but wouldn't feel weird to find so many objects that are not
consequence of the user interaction with the xo?

Eben, have you already thought about it? Any ideas?
