There exist CLI scripts (e.g., sugar-install-bundle) that handle 
Activity bundles (which install Activities), but currently support 
for Content bundles (which install Collections) is thin.

What I wish for is that Content bundles were not second-class 
citizens.  The entire Home View is devoted to presenting Activities 
for launching (or deletion).  But Collections currently are 
presented only within the left-hand panel in Browse.  To be viewed, 
they have to be "downloaded" by Browse to Journal, and then manually 
"launched" (from Journal).  [Deleting of Collections from the panel 
shown by Browse is done only with manually issued CLI commands.]

Activities are "verbs".  Collections are "nouns".  Sugar should make 
the getting_to/using of "nouns" as easy as that of "verbs".
