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".
