Thanks for the fix.

I'm so so with the idea of deprecating the dev command, Daniel.

>From one side you are right, all it does is create a symlink.  On the
other hand, is a symlink added in the exact place, in order for Sugar
to install your activity.  As a user, I never had to worry about it,
it just works.  As a comparison, the 'volo create' command we have in
sugar-web does simple operations as well (as we use it) but is very
nice to have that automated.
