We also need a way to keep around multiple bundle versions for the same
activities. There are various reasons for this:

 - Bundles for older versions of Sugar (initially we may need to support
only the latest Sugar which gets the new bundles, but eventually we'll
end up with the same situation we have today in the old ASLO)

 - Binaries built for different architectures (i686, x86_64, arm...)

 - Bundles manually pinned by deployments. This is crucial for
deployments that do their own QA and can't tolerate breakage during the
school year. The ASLO updater never supported this very well, and thus
many large deployments kept using the "microformat" updater along with a
wiki page or a static html page hosted on their infrastructure.

Sorry for dropping so many new requirements on you, but... Replacing a
production system is a lot harder than designing something anew :-)
