As is so often the case, the people who make the announcements do so
without any pre-release testing on technical people :-)

I've been responsible for the development of the XO Learning UI to date
and it is our intention to include a "Sugar" service of some kind with
that as soon as practicable.

We plan to follow the "Sugar on HTML" design as closely as we can, with
Simon & Manuel continuing to be involved in the work.

I expect our development at OLPC to implement that framework.

Personally I still need to properly understand at what stage the
specification is, and how much work will it take to get it over the
line.  I understand there is already an implementation for GTK in
progress, and I hope we can get an Android implementation done alongside
that as soon as possible.

I hope this helps clarify things for everyone.
