In all of this discussion of Sugar on a USB, it's not clear what part
of the taxonomy from here:


is being discussed.  Do the activities (fructose/honey) always come
from the user's flash drive?  If not, you will have many more
versioning issues.  And you really start to have issues if advanced
students want to write/modify activities.   If they do,  then you seem
to be talking about mounting /home/olpc (or equivalent) from the flash
drive in many of the scenarios mentioned.
