0install procedures will be triggered on avery activity launch,
but we can trigger them on uploading such bundle to
journal(installation), so there won't be any differences
(in case of downloading from ASLO) between regular activities and
activities w/ 0install dependencies

dunno, I guess in most cases its a designers question
I thought about simple download progress bar for launcher
control panel for setup 0install settings and we can have context menu
item for activities that have 0install dependencies to show 0install status.
