If the Sugar platform is defined as "what an activity author can
expect to find already installed", then we need to define the python
version in it. And I guess that python 2.6 (along with the deprecated
json modules) should be part of SP 0.84.
In that regard, Soas-1 isn't fully implementing any Sugar Platform,
and should considered broken from that POV.
