That's http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/574
The proposed Sugar Labs replacement is quite different ,
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Library and the Unified
Browser / Unified Objects proposals.  It still seems like the best way
to get a class of kids "on the same page" is to start at some web
page, like http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XS_Moodle_design#Straight_into_the_course_and_current_content

And impossible with PDFs.  But interactive HTML pages, cached locally
using Google Gears or HTML5 local storage so you can work through the
exercises in or out of school... it sounds  plausible.
