It seems sad that this effort will be devoted to redoing what is already 
done. There are many
new web activities such as Connect The Dots, Foodchain, Gears, Get 
Things Done, Grid Paint, Last One Loses, Markdown and Tank Operation.
Couldn't at least some of this energy and creativity be devoted to the 
development of new capabilities?

If we are going to emphasize programming in javascript, shouldn't we be 
trying to implement some of the interactive tools available on the 
internet such
as jsfiddle? There are also excellent tutorials for these technologies, 
couldn't we provide some learning materials?

How are these web (not Python) based activities to be delivered to 
deployments without access to the internet. Are we to abandon the
other 60% who do not have access? Perhaps GSOC could deliver a Sugar 
build which works on all XO models and supports the sugar web service.
