Sorry, I missed this email when I sent the other one. A use case I'm
working on today is grabbing a video when I'm online, sharing it with
students for them to watch at home when I'm offline. Do I need this patch to
enable this use case also?

Yes please add support for start.html. There a millions of books available
on the internet, but I think this is one of the few resources that provides
books that would be useful to a dyslectic second grader who reads below
grade level. And Sugar is the only platform who believes that that user is
important use case for eBooks. ;)
