[Sugar-devel] Keep offline for Browse (offline bookmarks)

Right now, you'd need to apply the patch to Browse yourself. I've
attached an .xo bundle that should work on sugar 0.86, but I haven't
tested it.

Right now I add some metadata to the journal object so that it is
opened by Browse by default
(metadata['activity']='org.laptop.WebActivity'). I could however
change it so that Browse opens any .zip file, not just files it
produced itself.

I've attached a patch that does that (adds the zip mime type in activity.info).
