Well, that is by far the best idea I've heard on the shared content 
issue! So I could provide the data as a separate bundle and kids use it 
from the Journal. And, if I can get my way with tagging and listing 
stuff from the datastore programatically I can even keep the categorized 
view in the activities...

Where can I find out more about these .xol bundles. It's the first time 
I read about them.
