For my activty, os.environ['SUGAR_ACTIVITY_ROOT'] (in a jhbuild) is 
/home/paulproteus/.sugar/default/org.creativecommons.LicensingActivity/ , 
and these are the directories that exist when the activity is running:

[paulproteus at f7 logs]$ find 
[paulproteus at f7 logs]$

So, am I expected to mkdir() the 
(etc.) directories myself?

In both an environment where I used sugar-install-bundle and one where I 
just "cp"'d it into place, the above seems to be the existing directory
