[sugar] 9.1 Proposal: Persistent activity storage (Bert Freudenberg)

Hi Michael et al,

I thought that starting an activity from the Home View would start it 
with no "state" preserved from the last time it was used.

Starting it from a Journal entry would start it with the "state" of the 
saved (kept?) instance, including any files that we worked on before.

In the first instance it may be useful to preserve some "settings" or 
"options" but probably not wise to always open with the same file.

What kinds of persistence are we talking about here?

Also, are there any activity launch time performance concerns? I want to 
make sure we don't slow down the launch time without a very good reason.
